Whether you live far away, or can’t visit the grave often enough, or simply want to know that the grave is always well-kept and tidy, we offer special services for tending to a grave. From maintenance to the placing of wreaths to planting, here’s what we offer:
A memorial wreath or a monument saddle is a meaningful way to pay tribute to the deceased. Wreaths, which are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, are displayed on the grave with a stand which is supplied with the wreath. Saddles are designed to be mounted on top of the monument. While saddles may remain all year, memorial wreaths may only be placed from November through March. Those wishing to reuse their wreath must remove it by March 31. After that, any wreaths left on lots will be removed and disposed of.
We typically mail our brochure and order form to our customers in late-September. If you have not received it, but would like to purchase a wreath, you can place your order by clicking on the ONLINE ORDER button, or contact your cemetery directly. Please have the section and lot number handy.
