When a public cemetery in a township is not under the control of a municipal corporation, and the title or control thereof is vested in an association or the trustees thereof, or is vested in a religious society, whether incorporated or not, or in the trustees thereof, and such cemetery is used exclusively for cemetery purposes, such association, society, or the trustees thereof may convey such grounds to the board of township trustees and its successors in office. Subject to the rights of the original grantor, his heirs or assigns, the board shall accept and take possession of such grounds, and take care of, keep in repair, hold, treat, and manage them in all respects as required by sections 517.01 to 517.32, inclusive, of the Revised Code.
