Rules & Regulations

Rest Haven Memorial Park is one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the entire country. This has been brought about by the mutual understanding and cooperation of all those interested in Rest Haven Memorial Park, especially the cemetery space owners, the persons holding the right to be interred therein, and the families of such persons.

To maintain the beauty and dignity of the cemetery, it is necessary to have rules and regulations to guide the operation of the cemetery grounds. Every Certificate of Title issued by Rest Haven Memorial Park, contains a provision that the purchaser takes his cemetery space, subject to the rules and regulations then in force and also those, which may be adopted in the future. These rules and regulations are as binding upon purchaser as though they were incorporated in the lot owner’s Certificate of Title.

No rule or regulation has ever been or will be made, which is not designed to benefit the persons interested in Rest Haven Memorial Park, individually and collectively. Experience has shown that it is only by a strict observance of these necessary rules and regulations by all persons that the standards, which people have come to expect of Rest Haven Memorial Park, may be maintained. All persons are required to observe the rules and regulations. In order to maintain uniformity and preserve the beauty of Rest Haven Memorial Park, we reserve the right to change or modify the rules and regulations, which are designed in the best interest of Rest Haven Memorial Park and its lot owners.

The general maintenance of the cemeteries and grounds, designed to improve and maintain their appearance and condition, shall be the responsibility of the Cemetery. It shall include such items as the upkeep of drives, buildings, fences, spring and fall cleanup, raking of leaves, and the general mowing of grass pursuant to the published mowing schedule.

Floral Regulations

These regulations are designed to preserve the appearance and dignity of garden areas. Flowers on memorials mean so much to so many people. Grave and niche decorations should honor our loved ones. When they lack beauty, order and neatness, they fall short of this goal.

Fresh cut flowers may be placed at the gravesite in ground-level cemetery vases throughout the year. For special requests concerning birthdays, anniversary or important dates, contact the cemetery office for any exceptions.

Placement of artificial flowers (plastic & silk) is permitted only in company approved vases. Exceptions are made for Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Memorial Day, Armistice (or Veteran's Day). These decorations will be removed within 10 days following the holiday. Christmas wreaths will be removed at Spring Clean-Up Week of March 1st.

Our cemetery is not responsible for the damage to or disappearance of flower arrangements, plants or decorative items.
