The Importance of Cemetery Rules in Choosing a Memorial
Cemeteries follow rules of ownership for determining who gets to be buried, place a memorial or who is allowed to authorize an inscription.
Usually when a family chooses a cemetery their choice is influenced by 3 major factors.
1) Where parents or other family members are buried.
2) Convenience and beauty of the cemetery location.
3) Religious, non-sectarian or military status.
Your cemetery probably has rules about what can or cannot be on a memorial and what material, usually granite or bronze, the memorial can be made of. Other restrictions may have to do with shape, color, size and height of memorial. Still other rules may define where and how many names can be on the memorial, what religious symbols are or are not allowed. Some cemeteries may forbid porcelain photos, etchings, and other memorabilia. Some of these rules may differ from section to section within a cemetery.
Also there are cemetery forms and cemetery fees that you must be aware of.
The memorial you choose and pay for may be refused at the cemetery gate if cemetery rules and policies are not followed.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR FOLLOWING THE RULES?
Ultimately the authorized owner is responsible for following all of the cemetery rules, regulations and specifications.
