The permanent maintenance fee paid at the time of purchasing the Certificate of Burial Privilege (effective after 1960) includes: ground leveling of the burial site, fertilizing, seeding and mowing of the lawn. Flowers and the care of grave are the responsibility of the Certificate/Deed Holder.

Everything is removed from the gravesite in preparation to ensure proper lawn care. We ask that families remove all personal items from the gravesite in advance until the maintenace has been completed. Signs are posted at every gate in advance of these cleanings as well as notifications post on our Facebook Page and this website.
