What records and type of records in York Co were cemeteries required to have for a burial of a person/body in 1902...Were cemeteries in 1902 required to record/keep records of the undertakers name, Doctor who pronounced death etc etc...Or was it not required to have any records recorded/kept until after a certain year (1906?)

I can't answer your question specific to York Co., but in the research I've done over the last 7 years, it's been my experience that cemeteries don't keep any record of the death certificate, undertaker, or cause of death. They usually just have a log of who owns the plot, the names of people buried in that plot, and their dates of BURIAL, not the dates of death. The funeral home or undertaker often kept detailed records though. What specifically are you trying to find? A date or cause of death?
