Cemetery Etiquette

Being Respectful

- Be sympathetic.
Do not play loud music in cars, with the windows down, for everyone to hear.  Please do not sit or lean on headstones.

- Follow cemetery rules.

We have a sign near the entrance of our Rules and Regulations. Please be mindful of these. 

- Try not to remain in the cemetery after dark.
Most cemeteries are open from dawn to dusk.

- Don't litter.
This creates extra work for the caretakers, and shows disrespect to the families who come to visit their loved ones.

- Leash your pets.
When you bring your pets, be sure to clean up after them.

- Follow the roadways and don't drive on the grass.
Drive slowly and obey any traffic signs posted in the cemetery. 

- Be respectful.
Keep the volume of voices down, and don’t use offensive language.

- Don't take photos of other people or other funerals.
This is a very private time for people.
