Potted plants or small temporary displays at the head of the grave only are permitted on the following days: birth/death dates of deceased, valentines, Easter, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Father’s Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Christmas items shall be permitted from December 1st through January 10th.  All others will be removed 7 (seven) days after those special days. Any other special days not mentioned must receive prior written approval from the cemetery.  We suggest you pick up your items by the 7th day as they will be disposed of.

The cemetery reserves all rights to remove adornments, flags, landscaping and unsightly or withered flowers from grave spaces without notice to plot holders. These items will be disposed of.

Only granite or marble headstones &/or benches are allowed.  Wooden, concrete or wrought iron benches &/or grave markers are not allowed and will be removed without notice to plot holders. You must obtain permission for the setting of headstones &/or benches.  Benches can only be placed at the foot of a grave on a space that is paid for in full.  If there are multiple benches already in one area then your request may not be approved. As of June 2017, concrete benches will no longer be allowed.  Those in place will be allowed to stay but will be moved to end of gravespace only.  At which point they deteriorate they will be disposed of.  Please call 832-385-7186 or 832-425-9986.

All monuments are the property of the individual purchaser.  The cemetery is not responsible for the upkeep of any monument.  All expenses incurred to keep monumentation from becoming unsightly through weather, vandalism, general deterioration or any other cause is the full responsibility of the owner.  Should any monument, marker, bench or other memorial become unsightly, dilapidated, or a safety hazard to visitors, the cemetery shall have the right at the expense of the owner to correct the condition or to remove the same.

Special cases may arise in which the literal enforcement of a rule may impose unnecessary hardship. The cemetery, therefore, reserves the right to make exceptions, suspensions, or modifications of any of these rules and regulations, without notice, when in the judgement of the cemetery such action appears necessary; and such temporary exception, suspension or modification shall in no way be construed as affecting the general application of such rules and regulations.  The cemetery reserves the right to change or amend any part or all of the above rules and regulations for the cemetery without notice to the plot owners. 

Effective August 2017, any plot holder repeatedly in violation of the rules and regulations will be assessed a “graveside cleaning fee” of no less than $50 per occurrence.
