Cemetery floral policies are posted, and brochures are available at the administration building.
At the time of burial, one floral arrangement accompanying the casket or urn will be placed at the gravesite.
We welcome flowers throughout the year. Please use floral cones for fresh-cut and artificial flowers, as they allow the turf to grow and be trimmed. Visitors may use containers available in receptacles throughout the cemetery. Once blooms are faded or damaged, they are removed. Otherwise, items are removed monthly.
Staples, spikes, and wire adhering arrangements to the ground or to any cemetery fixture are never allowed.
During the winter season from December to mid-January, grave blankets 2 x 3 feet or smaller and other seasonal items may be placed on gravesites. Please note that when snow falls over grave blankets, they are not readily visible to staff who must traverse sections on equipment.
Please do not leave items that have sentimental value at gravesites as these possessions cannot be secured.
All items placed in the cemetery become the property of the cemetery and will be properly disposed. The cemetery is not responsible for flowers placed on gravesites. They will not be replaced if damaged, stolen or eaten by deer.
To preserve the dignified appearance of the cemetery, commemorative items, balloons, photos, pinwheels, statues, glass items, wind chimes, votive lights, shepherd's hooks, stuffed animals, alcoholic products, and permanent plantings, among other items, are prohibited.
No object may be attached to a headstone, columbarium, marker, bench, or any other fixture in a national cemetery. Prohibited items will be removed.
Transportation for visitors needing assistance to gravesites is available, weather and ground conditions permitting, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
