Monuments & Memorials

There are a number of different monument and memorial options available to memorialize loved ones. However, due to a variety of safety and maintenance considerations, Cemetery Staff must approve all monuments and memorials before they are installed to ensure that they conform to set standards.

There are a number of monument options available to be placed in the cemetery. Please note that a permit is required for all monuments and that not all monuments are permitted on all types of plots. For more information, please contact Cemetery Staff

Corner Markers

Corner markers are small six inch square stone markers that mark the corners of a plot. They are customarily engraved with a last name or a family relationship (ex. mother or father). Corner markers are included in the purchase of plots.

Flat Monuments

Are monuments that are generally rectangular in shape and are installed so that they lie flush with the ground.

Pillow Monuments

Are monuments that are similar to flat markers but raised up slightly above ground level.

Upright Monuments

Are the more traditional monuments found in cemeteries.

  • One Flat Marker
  • Two Corner Markers

Double Plot
