Tuesday, March 10, 2015 | 06:13am

NASHVILLE -  A community meeting will be held at 6 p.m. (EST) on Monday, March 30, 2015 in the Sanctuary of the First United Methodist Church of Surgoinsville (621 Old Stage Road, Surgoinsville, Tenn. 37873) to provide an update on the Hawkins County Memorial Gardens receivership.

In December 2014, Brentwood-based Receivership Management, Inc. was named special deputy receiver in charge of the operation of the cemetery by Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance Commissioner Julie Mix McPeak.

Representatives of Receivership Management Inc. and the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance will attend the March 30 meeting.

The ownership of grave spaces at Hawkins County Memorial Gardens is still being determined. It is hoped that the receiver can create an inventory of unsold grave spaces and confirm the ownership of grave spaces at the March meeting.

Monthly court filings with the Chancery Court of Davidson County regarding Hawkins County Memorial Gardens (as well as maps of the cemetery property) are available at  

Please find enclosed a copy of the March 2, 2015 letter sent by Receivership Management to Hawkins County Memorial Gardens grave space owners about the March 30 meeting.
