New sections of single graves that can be marked with an upright monument have been opened in the Maplewood Section. These graves are for two burials and include a lawn crypt to receive the casket and foundations for the monument. The monument must be two foot wide, three foot high and one foot thick and constructed of gray granite.
Flat marker single graves are available in the Maplewood or Restland sections. These graves for two burials include the lawn crypt to receive the caskets. They may be marked with either a bronze of granite flat marker two foot by one foot. The marker type is determined by the section selected.
Triple depth graves are now available in the Richardson's Way section. When two graves are not enough and four graves are too much, these graves are the perfect solution. These graves include a single triple depth lawn crypt and the foundation to place a three foot high by two foot wide by one foot thick upright stone constructed of gray granite.
Holiday decorations are allowed one week before the holiday and are removed 1 - 2 weeks after the holiday.
Installation of markers/foundations will commence after the spring thaw, approximately April 15, 2013.
