Cemetery Headstone Requirements
- All monuments shall stand no higher than 36 inches in height including the tablet, base and foundation, and must be no more than 48 inches in length unless the foundation will apply to two adjoining graves.
- Single monuments shall be no wider than 48 inches. No copings, cement walls or boundaries of any kind are allowed. Only 1 vertical monument marker per plot is allowed. One flat marker per burial is allowed for military service recognition and for cremation burials. No single burial plot shall have more than 1 vertical headstone and 4 flat markers. Flat markers must be flush to the ground and may not extend beyond the plot. Exceptions may be considered and require prior approval by Cemetery District staff.
- A monument applying to two adjoining graves ("double headstone") is allowed for side-by-side plots only. A double headstone must not exceed 60 inches in length and 36 inches in height including the tablet, base and foundation. A double headstone may be placed during the summer months and can be installed prior to the interment of cremains burials on the respective adjoining plots.
