GRAVES

The cemetery does not permit raised graves. Any grave that is raised by a private owner will be leveled by the cemetery staff, at the owner's  expense.  New graves will be tamped and leveled in a timely manner by the cemetery. The care and maintenance of the grave marker is the "responsibility" of the individual grave site owner.  The cemetery is not responsible for maintenance or repair of the grave marker. 

PLANTINGS

The planting of perennial plants is not permitted.  The planting of bushes or evergreens is not permitted.  All such plantings will be removed without notice.

 

LOT MARKING

Fencing, stripping, bricks or any other method of marking  a grave or lot is not permitted and such  materials will be removed immediately. 

DAMAGED MATERIALS

All non-granite, broken and illegible memorials, curbing and corner steps will be removed and the area graded to lot level to produce unobstructed areas and sections, which can then be maintained with modern equipment.

PARKING

Please park on the paved roads only.  Do not drive or park on any grassy near a roadway as there may be burials there.  Areas of damaged grass are costly to repair and detract from the overall beauty of the cemetery.
