- Decorating Graves
- Can I decorate the graves of a loved one?
Absolutely. We encourage the modest decoration of graves for loved ones. We ask that decorations remain conservative in nature. Decorations placed during the summer maintenance season must not interfere with cemetery maintenance (mowing the lawn, watering, etc.). Decorations or adornments that are found to be interfering with this policy will be removed and disposed of without prior notice. See also: winter time decorations.
- When are flowers removed from a newly interred person?
During the summer maintenance season, flowers are removed from newly interred graves 7-10 days after the burial. Winter weather and other conditions may necessitate a change in normal flower removal time.
- When are flowers and adornments removed following the memorial day holiday?
The entire cemetery will be purged of memorial day decorations the Monday following the memorial day holiday. Absolutely every decoration that is not fully contained within the base of the headstone, or has the immediate potential to become airborne will be removed and disposed of.
- Is the cemetery responsible for decorations?
No. The cemetery will not be held liable for damaged, mission, stolen or otherwise injured decorations, headstones, personal items left at graves, etc.
- What kind of decorations are permissible?
Decorations and adornments should be modest, and inexpensive. Items left at graves can, and often are, stolen by other patrons. However unfortunate this is, the cemetery has no way of policing this behavior. In addition,
- What are the guidelines for winter time decorations?
In the winter time, (November 1st – April 1st), decorations may be placed anywhere on the grave. Decorations not removed or brought into compliance with the summer policy by April 1st, will be removed and disposed of.
