Funerals & Interments
All funerals and interments within the cemetery grounds are under the direction of the supervisor or as designated by the Service Director. Interments will not be allowed until proper arrangements have been made with the cemetery supervisor. The number of interments, which may be upon a lot, is fixed at the time of purchase of said lot. The supervisor determines the arrangement of the location of graves upon a lot so that uniformity shall prevail. The supervisor shall make no burial until all arrangements and permits have been completed.
Excavation & Foundation
Any and all work connected in any way with the placing of foundations and digging and filling of graves shall be done by cemetery employees under the direction of the supervisor, and only after proper application has been made.
The fees for interment may be obtained at the cemetery office. In all cases, the base rate shall include the opening and closing of the grave, lining of the grave, covering earth with green carpet, the use of the lowering device and the sodding and seeding of the grave. There shall be an additional charge for the use of a tent. Interment charges are due and payable prior to the interment.
The burial of two or more persons in one grave shall not be permitted, except if a mother and stillborn child are to be buried at the same time or as may be authorized by the Service Director. Exceptions will be made in the case of cremations.
When a lot is held by two or more persons, a permit for interment will be granted to either of them and in such part of the lot as he may request. Persons making requests for interments must be able to give the following information: full name of the deceased, last residence, age, place of birth, and place and date of death. When making application for interment and the cemetery records show the ownership of the lot to be in a different name than that of the person to be interred, providing no previous arrangement has been made, it shall be necessary for the deed or Burial Authorization Form to accompany said application; otherwise, no permit for interment will be issued.
Funerals shall be conducted during regular cemetery hours, which are Monday through Friday, prior to 3 p.m. and on Saturday prior to 3 p.m. The time of the funeral shall be determined as of entry of the funeral procession into the cemetery. Interments on Sunday are not permitted except in case of emergency, or in the case of contagious disease when ordered by the Board of Health, or on holidays except in the case of an emergency. Interments and disinterments shall be made by regular cemetery employees, upon written orders from the office of the Service Director.
The Director of Service reserves the right to correct any errors that may be made either in marking interments, disinterments or removals, or in the description, transfer or conveyance of any interment property. The Director can accomplish this by either of the following methods: canceling such conveyance and substitution and conveying, in lieu thereof, other interment property of equal value and similar location, if possible, or, by refunding the amount of money paid on account of said purchase.
In the event the error shall involve the interment of remains of any person on such property, the Service Director reserves the right to remove and re-inter the remains of such property of equal value and similar location as may be substituted and conveyed in lieu thereof. Outer cases of concrete or steel, of not less than 10 gauge, are to be used for all burials.
