Cemetery Decorations

In order to maintain the cemetery in a manner that you can be proud of, we have established regulations regarding the decoration of graves, mausoleum spaces, known as crypts, and columbarium spaces, known as niches, in which cremation urns are placed.

These regulations are to ensure the beauty of the cemetery and the safety of visitors and groundskeepers. Download a flyer here.

Approved Decorations

Flowers and American flags placed in cemetery approved vases are approved decorations.

All decorations except flowers and American flags placed in cemetery approved vases will be removed from graves by cemetery personnel one week after interment.

Please see above for a selection of silk flower arrangements conveniently available for purchase through the cemetery office.

Unapproved Decorations

For the safety of cemetery visitors and staff and the beauty of the cemetery, some types of decorations may not be placed at graves or in the mausoleum.

Glass or ceramic vases and jars are not permitted at any time at graves or in the mausoleum. Mechanical and electronic devices or any decorations above three feet in height are not permitted at any time. These devices make it difficult and dangerous to maintain the cemetery grounds.

Planting of any kind is not permitted. Potting soil or dirt cannot be placed in bronze memorial vases. Please consider donating a tree to the cemetery in honor of your loved one through our Living Memorial Program.

Living Memorial Program

If you are looking for a way to permanently honor your loved one, consider donating a tree to the cemetery in their honor.

We will plant maples, oaks, elms, white pines, ginkgos and lindens.

We can assist you with the location and the details. Your tree will add grace and beauty to the cemetery today, and increase in grandeur for generations to come.

Cemetery Clean-up Days

To beautify the cemetery, all cemetery clean-up days will begin on March 1 and November 15, or the next business day.

All cemetery decorations including flowers and American flags placed in cemetery-approved vases will be removed from graves, mausoleum spaces, known as crypts, and columbarium spaces known as niches, in which cremation urns are placed.

If you wish to keep your decoration, please remove it prior to that day.

Removal of Decorations

All decorations except flowers and American flags placed in cemetery approved vases will be removed from graves by cemetery personnel one week after interment.

Cemetery personnel will also remove unauthorized decorations and wilted flowers from graves and the mausoleum throughout the year.

Excluding flowers and American flags placed in cemetery-approved vases, all types of floral displays and personal decorations will be removed one week after the following holidays: Valentine’s Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving Day.
