Green Lawn Rules & Regulations

 

Purchase of cemetery lots

 1.The purchase of a cemetery lot authorizes the owner the RIGHT TO INTER human remains within the lot boundaries. No other rights are granted except as explicitly stated in these rules. Title to the real estate remains with the town.

2. Current or former residents of Mont Vernon or their estate may purchase up to four graves. Lots may contain one, two or four graves. Graves measure five feet by ten feet. Each grave may contain one full burial or two cremations.

3. By written request to the cemetery trustees, lot owners may transfer the RIGHT TO INTER to a new owner who meets the residency requirements above. A lot owner who wishes to relinquish an unused lot without a monument may sell it back to Green Lawn Cemetery at the total price originally paid less the perpetual care portion.

4. Ledge, large boulders or mature trees may reduce the capacity of a lot. The owner may ask the cemetery     trustees to have these impediments removed. If they agree, the owner must pay for work in advance. The owner may instead choose to accept the reduction in capacity or relinquish the lot as described above.

 

INTERMENTS

1.The signed Interment Order and payment must be received by a cemetery trustee at least three days before the scheduled burial. Failure to comply may require a postponement of the burial to a later date.

In cases where sub-surface obstructions are discovered at the time of interment, a cemetery trustee or designee may select an alternate usable grave in the same lot.

3. All burials must be contained within or covered by a cemetery vault.

 

MARKERS AND MONUMENTS
