KERSHAW CITY CEMETERY RULES AND REGULATIONS

The Town of Kershaw City Cemetery Committee Members and Manager, in their desire to provide a quiet and beautiful resting place for the deceased, have adopted these rules and regulations.  These rules apply to every current and future lot owner. 

** The Town of Kershaw will maintain the City Cemetery and provide lawn care and maintenance as needed.  Lot owners may choose to care for their own plots, with notice.  If you wish to maintain your own plot/lot, this must be done in writing, to the Cemetery Manager.  Any issues related to this care will be brought to the owners attention by the Cemetery Committee.

ALL RULES MUST BE ADHERED TO BY THE INDIVIDUAL LOT OWNER

  • The Cemetery Manager must be notified before any burials, or installations (copings, markers, etc.) are installed and all related fees are paid.

  • Monuments in the new sections of the cemetery must be set at ground level.  Certain designated portions of the older section of the cemetery have unrestricted monument privileges that do allow above ground grave markers.
     

  • No new fences or enclosures, hedges, shrubbery, trees, or planting are permitted on or around cemetery lots.  No rock, gravel, or raised corners are allowed.

  • One permanent floral container is allowed per individual plot.  Any other items (ornaments, wind chimes, globes, statuary, glass trinkets or containers, etc.) will be removed without notice and placed in the southeast corner near the shed to be reclaimed.  The cemetery committee/workers will not be responsible for those items.

  • Following a burial, the family will be responsible for removing flowers within 7 days of the service.  Anything still on the grave after 7 days will be removed and disposed of by the cemetery workers.

  • When placing flowers in vases, secure the flowers with tape or wire that will keep the flowers in place.  Unfortunately, the wind blows many arrangements out of the vases.  Loose arrangements are put in the southeast corner, but workers cannot insure that they are returned to the right site.  Only claim arrangements that were placed by your family. 

  • Individual plots can be watered for one hour on Mondays and Thursdays during the spring, summer and early fall months, during daylight hours only.  The dates will be posted on the Town of Kershaw website and FaceBook.   

Please Note:  All flowers that are tattered, faded or torn will be removed.  The Cemetery Manager will make every effort to contact the plot owner before removing any flowers that are deemed tattered, faded or torn.

 

Respectfully,

 

Cemetery Manager
