Grave Markers and Monuments
- The cemetery does not sell grave markers or monuments, but can provide referrals to local monument companies.
- Only one marker or monument is permitted per gravesite. We have flat marker sections, raised monument sections and mixed marker sections.
- Cemetery staff will order veteran’s markers and monuments. These are paid for by the Veteran’s Administration. There will be a marker installation fee.
- Grave markers and monuments must conform to size restrictions. Cemetery staff must approve all monuments. A drawing of the monument, including dimensions, should be mailed or faxed to the cemetery office for prior approval.
- Cemetery staff sets flat markers after payment of a setting fee, but monument companies are responsible for setting raised monuments. If a monument company is not familiar with our rules and procedures, they should contact us before producing the monument or marker.
While some exceptions may be made to match existing family markers or monuments in the old sections of the cemetery, the following restrictions generally apply:
- Height: 36” maximum including the base, or 42” for monuments provided by the Veteran’s Administration.
- Width: 34” maximum if centered on one grave, 48” over two graves, and 54” over three or more graves.
- Thickness: 12” maximum.
- Monuments must have an appropriate foundation including a four-inch mow strip around the base.
- Vase holes in monument bases are allowed but not recommended. Vase holes or attached vases must have drainage holes to prevent water accumulation. Flower cup inserts must be inverted when not in use.

- Path and memorial graves are limited to 12” x 24” markers.
Flower and Grave Decoration Policy
Only live cut flowers and small potted plants are allowed as grave decorations. All cut flowers and potted plants are removed every Thursday. Healthy potted plants may be left at the discretion of cemetery and mow crew personnel if they do not interfere with grounds-keeping work. Cut flowers will not be left.
