Public cemeteries in the Cayman Islands are managed by the Department of Environmental Health. Private cemeteries are monitored by DEH to ensure that vaults are constructed to DEH specifications.

The department is responsible for the allocation of land for burial, design and construction of burial vaults. The maintenance of the grounds and landscaping is carried out by the Recreations, Parks & Cemeteries Unit (RPCU) in Grand Cayman and the Public Works Department in Cayman Brac & Little Cayman.

The construction and maintenance of headstones and other grave monuments is usually the responsibility of the families of the deceased.
