Spring Clean Up, Mementos and Plantings

It is that time of year again. Visitors and interment rights holders are reminded of their requirement to remove any and all artificial flowers, wreaths, shepherds hooks, planters, vases and other ornaments by April 30th.  Such items are a nuisance as they interfere with the Cemetery's seasonal maintenance obligations, can cause personal injury, have tendency to deteriorate when left unattended, and are unsightly contradictions to the natural beauty of this historic rural garden style cemetery.  Uncollected items will be removed and held for 30 days after which time they shall be disposed without further notice.  Notice has been posted on site (at both main entrances) since April 1st. These long standing regulations and expectations are detailed by the Cemetery's by-laws. Please contact the Cemetery directly should you have questions, concerns, or require a copy of the Cemetery's by-laws and regulations.

Lastly, natural plantings are encouraged with an an prroved bordere flower bed iderectly infornt of an upright headstone.  Please refer to the Cemetery's by-laws and regulations  regarding sizes and location of permissible flower beds.  Non conforming flower beds or plantings beds  may be removed by Cemetery staff.  Plantings of trees or shrubs are are only permitted in rare instances and shall always require prior cemetery approval.
