Cemetery Regulations

Before designing a monument that is right for you or your loved one, it is always important to understand what regulations exist for the section of the cemetery in which the monument will be located.  For example, many cemeteries have flat or bronze only sections where upright monuments cannot be erected.  Still others require upright monuments to be of a certain height or thickness.  Understanding cemetery regulations will help in determining the best style for you and simplify the entire design process.  There are several ways to acquire this information.  In most cases, your cemetery will have the regulations posted in the cemetery, at the office, or on signs throughout the cemetery. If you are unable to find the regulations this way, contact your township office, city office, or church and ask them to send you the regulations.  Our staff can assist you in collecting and understanding the requirements for your cemetery if necessary.
