After remaining closed for four months, Burr Oak Cemetery near Alsip will reopen to the public Thursday, officials said.

For the first week, visitors may enter the cemetery only with a ticket issued by cemetery officials that shows the location of a loved one’s grave site, officials said in a statement Tuesday.

Burr Oak has been closed since July, when it was alleged that four workers were involved in a grave-reselling scheme. Authorities alleged that the four workers had the remains of some bodies dug up and dumped on a vacant lot, while reselling the plots for a cash profit.

From Thursday through Nov. 25, visitors may enter the cemetery from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Officials will provide a Web site where visitors can get information on their loved ones’ grave sites and obtain an entry ticket, the statement said.
