Cemeteries

Cemeteries are operated by the Hamilton Township Board of Trustees under the direction of the Township Administrator (or designee). They are operated in conformance with the Laws of the State of Ohio, and in accordance with the appropriate principles of good conduct which the Trustees believe should govern the operation of the cemeteries.  Cemetery records are maintained at the Hamilton Township Administration Building.  Information and assistance regarding burials, deeds, transfers, etc. is available by calling 513-683-8520 or by email.

The Hamilton Township Cemeteries are NOT a permissible burial ground for animals or pets.
