Springville Township oversees three cemeteries: Sherman-Mesick Memorial Cemetery, Minar Memorial Cemetery, and Yuma Cemetery.
The Township Clerk oversees all cemeteries in the township. The Cemetery or Burial Grounds Act, Public Act 215 of 1937, MCL 128.1, et seq., gives townships authority to establish, control, maintain and care for public cemeteries that are not owned by another municipality or private organization, and to adopt an ordinance to regulate the operation and use of a cemetery.
In addition, the Vacating Cemetery in a Township Act, Public Act 49 of 1895, MCL 128.31, et seq., requires townships to reinter in a township cemetery remains disinterred from a private cemetery in the township, when 10 or more township residents complain in writing that the private cemetery is not being cared for.
