General Questions

How many cremated remains can be placed in one lot?





Can we feed the wildlife?





What is perpetual care?



 





Is a vault required for burials?



How can I find my relative buried at Riverside? 

 

is a great resource to find the burial location of your loved ones.

We have a map located at the cemetery entrance, or you can click on the PDF here: 

If you are unable to find what you are looking for, please call the main office and we will assist you. 



We allow up to 3 cremated remains urns to be buried on top of a casket or 4 cremated remains urns in a single plot without a casket. Cremation garden only allows 2 cremated remains urns in a lot. Veterans section only allows the spouse to be buried with the Veteran.



We ask that you would not feed the wildlife. We understand it is fun to throw bread and corn out. We know deer and turkeys fun to look at but human food isn't healthy for them to eat. Please no dumping of food on the grass/graves. This is a cemetery, where people have loved ones resting and that needs to be respected.



Perpetual care is a fund put together to help maintain cemetery grounds, graves, crypts, mausoleums, etc. Families of people buried in the cemetery grounds contribute towards these funds to ensure the place is clean, well-maintained, and secure. With these funds, the Riverside Cemetery makes sure the grass is mowed regularly, pathways and seats on the grounds are maintained well, and signage is visible. Riverside is not responsible for repairing broken headstones or grave markers, or cleaning and maintaining your loved one's grave site. That is your responsibility and not involved in the services provided by the perpetual care fund. However, Riverside will accept requests to tend to a grave site at an additional cost. 



Yes, for a casket burial, a vault is required. For an urn burial, we do not require a vault.

Decorating/Planting

I have a tree/shrub that is overgrown. What can I do?
 

  • Riverside staff can remove it and haul away at a cost. We will remove the stump, fill in the area with dirt/ grass seed, and water it.

  • You can remove it but must dispose of it on your own (which means no dumping in our garbage cans or along the road. You would be responsible for filling with dirt/seed.

  • You can replace it with something else but should first check with the office on whats allowed and a proper placement on your lot.

Can I plant on my lot?

We do allow planting in any of our upright (monument) sections. If your lot is in a flat marker only section; only artificial flowers are allowed. You can always ask about donating towards the tree fund in memory of your loved one.

If you would like to know more about planting policies click the PDF here or stop in the office for a brochure

Monuments/Markers

What is the difference between an upright verses flat marker only section?
 

In an upright section you can have a monument or a flat marker. The advantage to upright sections is you can plant flowers, trees, & shrubs

In a flat only section, your marker must be flush with the ground. No planting of any kind is allowed.

 

A monument/marker on my lot has sunk. What do I do?
 

If your monument/marker has sunk into the ground, call the monument company and they can help you re-level your stone. Riverside Cemetery is not responsible for raising or fixing any monument or marker.
