Monuments and Commemorations

The size of your monument depends on the section of the cemetery where your plot is located. Check with your funeral director or with the cemetery office for the size parameters of the monument you wish to have on the plot. No tree planting is permitted on plots. You may donate a tree to plant on the cemetery grounds if you wish.

Perennials may no longer be planted on plots. Existing perennials on individual plots must not exceed forty inches in height, and should not encroach on surrounding plots. Annuals may be planted in a mulched bed in front of your marker extending no more than sixteen inches in front of the monument and should not encroach on surrounding plots.

The plot holder or their families must maintain all plantings planted on individualized plots. If you have any questions concerning these or any other Cemetery policies, please contact the cemetery administrator at 302-652-5770.
