Cemetery, Fields and Trees

About the Cemetery


The cemetery grounds are maintained by the Cemetery Department under the Department of Public Works. The cemetery grounds are not public property and are not a public park or playground.

All visitors are requested to keep in mind that the cemeteries are consecrated to the memories of who are buried within. Dignified behavior is expected and will be required.

In the many years of cemetery operation, it has been shown that is necessary to adopt and enforce regulations to govern the conduct of visitors and ensure respect for the dead, protection of the grounds, and safety of the visitors. The rules and regulations are fair, and common sense guidelines.
