Flower services

Premium flower vase made of die-cast zine on the left and standard aluminum flower vase on the right

Flower vases

Families can purchase in-ground flower vases that can be used to preserve fresh cut flowers. When flowers wilt, staff will remove them and turn down the inner cup of the vase to be flush with the ground. This allows visitors to enjoy flowers while they visit, and permits cemetery staff to continue with landscaping and maintenance of the lot. Vase options include aluminium or die-cast zinc. Please note: artificial flowers are only permitted from Thanksgiving weekend until April 15 unless you have a saddle wreath attached on top of your upright monument.
