Fresh graves are typically left with a mound of excess soil to allow the natural settling of the soil while maintaining a level consistent with the ground around the grave.
In the event of rainy weather, the soil in the grave will settle more and faster causing the grave to "sink". We strive to fill these as soon as we are able. In the event your loved one's grave has sunk, please call the Cemetery Office and let them know your loved one's grave needs more soil.

Per cemetery regulations, no more than two sets of remains shall be buried in one grave in the following circumstances:
All graves, once the ground has settled, must be covered by natural grass. You may place sod and plant grass (as long as it's native and non-invasive) on your loved one's grave once the ground has settled. (We recommend approximately 6 months from the date of burial).
However, absolutely no rocks, gravel, stone, or any other material may be placed on or used to cover a grave.
Please refer to our No Clutter Clause Effective May 2022 or our Rules and Regulations Booklet for current guidelines.
The cemetery has no requirement on any outer burial containers, ie, concrete liners or vaults. However, the use of one does help prevent the cemetery grounds from sinking in over time.
