The Deerfield Cemetery Commission was established in 1988 after the Deerfield Cemetery Association (a private entity) relinquished control, and the operation, maintenance and financial management of the Deerfield Cemetery was transferred to the Village of Deerfield (Resolution Number R-88-11). The Cemetery Commission oversees all issues related to the cemetery grounds including the maintenance, restoration and care. Also, the commission maintains records of plot ownership, burial sites, and oversees the Deerfield Cemetery website.
The Cemetery Commission typically meets multiple times a year, with periodic inspections of the cemetery grounds.
