It is important that you provide as much data as possible when requesting a look-up by a cemetery. Provide the ancestor's full name, maiden name (if known), date of birth, date of death, reason you believe he or she is buried at this location, etc. This will greatly improve your odds of getting the result you want and will make the records keeper's job much easier.
You can also contact for lookups in this cemetery.
