Calvary Cemetery Guidelines

Calvary Cemetery issues these guidelines with the intention of keeping the cemetery a place of beauty and order. Therefore, please take care of what is done at a gravesite. Keep in mind that flowers must be watered regularly, especially hanging plants. Deflated balloons, tattered flags, dead flowers, etc. do not honor those buried at Calvary.

  • All flowers must be removed by October 1st.
  • Christmas wreaths and decorations may not be placed on graves prior to Thanksgiving Day and must be removed by April 1st. Those not removed will be discarded by Calvary Cemetery personnel.
  • The planting of shrubs or trees is prohibited.
  • Calvary Cemetery is not responsible for the upkeep of flowers, etc.
