Cemetery Etiquette : To respect the memories of loved ones and to protect the privacy and safety of our families and guests, all visitors are asked to follow these general guidelines:
• Driving speed 5 miles per hour.
• Do not walk on markers or their granite bases. The grave is sacred --- a loved one's final resting place.
• Give other visitors privacy and quiet to allow them to meditate, pray or just visit with their departed loved ones.
• Turn off car radios when on the grounds. Play music softly on a portable player at the grave you are uisiting.
• Refrain from loud discussions or boisterous behavior when on the grounds. Children require adult supervision.
• Light NO CANDLES, NO FIRES of any kind. SMOKING ON THE GROUNDS IS PROHIBITED .
• Absolutely NO ALCOHOL and NO FIREARMS are allowed on the grounds.
Violations will be immediately reported to the police.
• Items are not to be removed from graves, except by family members of the loved one or by authorized cemetery staff
• Follow the rules of the cemetery --- they protect you and your loved ones.
• Only service animals are allowed out of cars in the cemetery.
• Vandalizing a grave (including the marker on the grave) is a felony offense in the United States. Vandals will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
