Articles 13 and 14 of said ordinance provide that the holders of funeral rights can not be deceased persons, adding in its first transitory provision that "anyone who has a funeral certificate title before the entry into force of this ordinance, will have a term of five years to adapt said title to the provisions thereof. "

After the last two years, hundreds of owner changes have been processed, but there are still a significant number of graves, niches and vaults to be updated;
Since the construction of the current cemetery in 1885 had not made any campaign in this regard, nor there was mandatory regulations until the aforementioned year 2010.
For this reason, it was necessary to extend the deadline agreed upon at the time to provide the relatives of deceased persons with the necessary procedures, taking into account personnel problems due to retirements, termination of the contract, etc .;
and that also greatly affect the Cemetery Bureau of the City of Totana.
