No memorials (Monument or Marker) will be permitted on any grave space or lot until burial rights are paid in full. No above ground level Markers or Monuments will be permitted at a Single Grave Space (Lawn Level Markers only). Monuments will require at least two spaces for installation. All memorials must be made of Granite. Bronze markers from VA must be mounted on granite Monument.
Prior to erection of any Memorial or Marker, a detailed plan of the Memorial must be submitted to the Cemetery for Approval. This plan includes, but is not limited to, the design how the memorial will look, size of base/die or marker (LxWxH), and who has approved the purchase of the stone. The Cemetery will review information and contact Memorial Company in the event of an error or concern, and when foundation is prepared for above ground monuments. Lawn level markers are installed with foundation after memorial is delivered.
When using the back of an above ground monument, only the area of the monument that corresponds to the lots owned can be used. Please contact Cemetery for further clarification.

Third party foundation installs are still subject to foundation charges, for engineering, design, layout, supervision, sod, etc. Contact Cemetery for cost of this service.
Monument/Marker Drop-off Orders: Monuments and Markers from out of town Monument Dealers and Internet sales are allowed at the Cemetery.

The Cemetery is capable of off-loading Lawn Level Markers, and installing, provided the delivery is made from a standard size delivery van or truck. No Semis.
