Rules and regulations
Pine Grove Cemetery, and Sugar Grove Cemetery
Following is a list of rules and regulations that seem to be in line with those governing other cemeteries.
1. Graves are sacredly devoted to the burial of the dead, so the behavior of persons working in or viewing the cemetery should be respectful.
2. No memorials, structures, inscriptions, ect. Other than the normal monument or marker placed at a grave site will be permitted.
3. Live flowers, potted plants, wreaths, holders, ect. Must be placed close to the monument as it makes it too difficult to mow and trim the grass.
4. Holders containing flowers or other decorations will be removed as soon as flowers fade or wither or if they interfere with the maintenance of the cemetery.
5. Any flowers or tributes placed on the grave must be removed two weeks before Easter or seasonally.
6. Graves and foot stones must be level with the ground to allow for ease of mowing.
7. Borders around graves made of stone, bricks, rock chips, fences, beams, ect. Are not to be used. A 2 to 4 inch border of pebbles may be placed around headstones.
8. No trees or shrubs are to be placed on a burial lot or in the cemetery.
9. No graves shall be opened without approval of the church representatives.
10. Church members, trustees will not be responsible for damage or loss of floral arrangements or monuments. Neither can they be responsible for accidents that may occur.
11. Persons who have reserved lots but do not plan to use them for family members are asked to notify a trustee of the church.
12. Comments may be made to any trustee of the Pine Grove Church in writing with signature.
For years the community has been proud of the appearance of the cemetery. It is pretty much a matter of hiring someone to maintain the cemetery. We hope that families will continue to support our effort so we can have one of the nicest and well-kept cemeteries in the area.
