We need your support, even if you are not a New Orleans licensed tour guide or company.

In 2015, New Orleans Catholic Cemeteries (NOCC) unlawfully closed its cemeteries to the public. And now, NOCC and Cemetery Tours NOLA LLC (CTN) plan to exclude all other licensed tour guides and companies from St. Louis Cemeteries Nos. 1 & 2.  Only subject matter approved by NOCC can be mentioned during the only tour available. The price will be arbitrarily fixed by NOCC and CTN, without any free market competition.

The association needs your support, especially now that we and the general public are at risk of permanently losing our legal right to free and reasonable access to cemeteries owned and operated by New Orleans Catholic Cemeteries (NOCC). NOCC and Cemetery Tours NOLA LLC (CTN) plan to exclude all other cemetery tour guides and companies St. Louis Cemeteries Nos. 1 & 2. Our association and our friends are a united front to preserving the public's right to free and reasonable access to the city's historical cemeteries and our right to compete fairly in the cemetery tour industry.

By registering here as our friend and possibly making a donation directly to our litigation law firm, DAVID W. NANCE LAW FIRM LLC, you will help us in our fight to keep Louisiana cemeteries open to the public.


We have three main reasons to exist:

1) protection of industry and public rights relating to cemeteries, 

2) advancement of industry and public education relating to cemetery law, and

3) maintenance of public cemeteries in order to benefit society and lessen the burdens of government.
