Forest Lawn Group is asking Pokemon Go players to refrain from trying to catch 'em in the cemeteries.

The cemeteries in the Forest Lawn Group include Forest Lawn (Buffalo), St. Matthew's (West Seneca), Lakeside (Hamburg) and the Williamsville Cemetery.

Forest Lawn Group issued the following statement:

"While we eagerly welcome and strategically encourage all visitors to experience the beauty and serenity of our cemeteries, and certainly support the idea of getting young people to discover and explore important places in their community, we believe that recreational games such as Pokemon Go run counter to our commitment to maintaining the peace and dignity of our grounds."
