Cemetery Rules & Regulations
The rules and regulations governing the Cemetery provide for an orderly, well groomed, quiet sanctuary. To achieve and maintain that status requires a joint effort between the cemetery staff and cemetery patrons. Those persons owning rights to burial and those having deceased loved ones interred within the cemetery need to be aware of the policies that regulate activities so that no misunderstandings or problems occur.
All work in the cemetery including, but not limited to: internments, disinternments, plantings, landscaping, grading, record keeping, placement of grave markers, grounds keeping, construction and all maintenance, improvement and beautifying of the grounds will be done under the supervision of the Brigham City Cemetery Sexton.
The upkeep of the Cemetery, provided by Brigham City, includes, but is not limited to, mowing grass at reasonable intervals, laying sod and reseeding, filling sunken graves, sprinkler irrigation, trimming trees and shrubs, removing wilted flowers and decorations, edging around headstones and other clean up as needed. Perpetual care does not include repairing or replacing markers, monuments or other personal property.
By ordinance no glass, wire or dogs are allowed in the Cemetery. Use of shepherd's hooks in the cemetery is restricted to Memorial Day through the following Monday and during the month of December. Use of shepherd's hooks at any other time will result in their removal by cemetery staff.
Any questions regarding these policies or requests not covered by policy can be discussed in person at the Cemetery Offices, via letter to the cemetery sexton or via the phone. Office hours are 8:00 am to Noon and 1:00pm to 5:00pm Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays.
