WHY DECORATIONS MUST BE LIMITED
As the number of burials increase in a cemetery year by year, the problems of ORDER, SAFETY, NEATNESS AND BEAUTY increase accordingly…It is much like a city that has to have zoning laws to keep growth orderly and to protect the whole against the few who would disregard the rights of others.
You must remember, that since the inception of Green Hill in 1962, there have been many hundreds of burials with many more being made each year.
We know that you will agree that the NATURAL LIVING BEAUTY of nature is the finest tribute we can pay to our loved ones laid to rest here in our care. So, to keep your park beautiful and within the bounds of good taste at all times we respectfully request your cooperation with the regulations set out on this form.
It is not our intention to displease anyone. Quite the contrary, we want to make Green Hill more pleasing to everyone, and we feel sure that these rules will make your cemetery a much more beautiful and comforting place in which to come and pay your respects.
