Rules & Regulations

Our goal is to maintain the Cemetery and keep its beautiful landscape and neat appearance. 
The following summary of the Rules and Regulations will allow us to do so.
We ask that this information be shared with family members to offset any future confusion.

1.    No lot may be enclosed including the “Flower Bed” area.  “Flower Beds” will not be more than 12” from the front of the headstone. 
       Permission must be granted to plant in the rear of headstone and, if allowed, cannot be more than 6” from the headstone.
2.    No shrubs, trees, etc. are allowed.
3.    No artificial flowers, bushes, etc., are allowed under any circumstance. Silk flowers fall into this category.
4.    ROSE BUSHES ARE NOT ALLOWED ANYWHERE IN THE CEMETERY.
5.    Eternal Lights are not allowed anywhere in the Cemetery.
6.    NO HEADSTONE IS ALLOWED UNTIL THE LOT IS PAID IN FULL AND A DEED HAS BEEN ASSIGNED. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO MEMORIAL PLAQUES OF ANY KIND.
7.    The Superintendent must approve all headstones. Permission to install will be denied if not pre-approved. No odd size, design or height is allowed without express approval.
8.    Memorial benches are allowed and welcomed with the Superintendent’s approval for location and placement.
9.    No owners can sell their Lots. Lots must be sold back to the Cemetery at the original cost.
10.  Walking of dogs is not allowed in the Cemetery.
11.  Speed limit is 15 miles per hour within the Cemetery grounds.
