Cemetery Rules and Regulations

  • No ATVs, snowmobiles, or bicycles allowed on cemetery grounds. Skateboarding and rollerblading is prohibited.

  • Plastic and artificial flowers are currently allowed we are one of few cemeteries that allow them. They will be removed and disposed of by the caretakers when the flowers are deemed faded, or past the holiday for which they were placed.

  • All flowers and decorations must be in urns, pots or other containers and must be placed within 12 inches of the tombstone preferably on the sides of the stone. Glass containers or decorations of any kind are prohibited. NO wooden decorations of any kind may be used in the cemetery.

  • Plants and shrubs that you would like to plant at the cemetery may be placed in the ground and MUST be planted at the ends of the tombstone they can not be planted in front of, or behind the stone.

  • Winter wreaths and decorations must be removed by April 1st or the cemetery caretakers will remove them and dispose of them.

  • All shrubbery, plants, trees and other decorations determined to be out of control by the Cemetery Association or caretakers will be removed.

  • You may not fence in a cemetery plot, place rocks, mulch or other such landscaping materials on or around the grave.

  • Decorations may not be placed beyond 12 inches from the headstone. Any decorations, flowers, etc., placed outside of the 12 inch limit will be removed and disposed of by the caretakers.

  • Footstones are no longer permitted

  • Monument Repairs or Replacements: Repair and/or replacement of monuments may be performed, but the Cemetery Association must be notified at least one week in advance of any work. It is preferred that a licensed monument company perform the work; however, family members and other individuals may perform the work, provided they supply the Cemetery Association with a copy of their Liability Insurance for the work in question. See "cemetery fees" for any associated costs for foundation work.

  • NOTE: All new burials here MUST have a burial permit. Even for cremations - you can not simply place cremated remains in this cemetery without a burial permit provided by a funeral home or crematorium. If the remains are coming from out of state, we must have a permit from the state they came from. That burial permit MUST be on file with the Linesville Cemetery Association. No interments, inurnments or cremains can be placed here without our permission.
