Rules and Regulations
October 1, 2015
Green Haven Cemetery is a Green cemetery therefore rules are not the same as for other cemeteries. Please read the following list of rules and regulations carefully before making a decision.
1.Cemetery property may be purchased only at the time of need.
2.Individual spaces are used in order of burial.
3.The cemetery will choose the next space available. This means that family members may not be next to each other. You are buried in a place, Green Haven Cemetery, not a spot.
4.Grave markings are not permitted. There will not be grave markers or monuments.
5.Decorations placed in the cemetery will be removed and placed around the monolith cenotaph.
6.The names of the deceased may be inscribed on the cenotaph to indicate the burial took place here. The date of birth and death may be included in the inscription.
7.Caskets, and ridged outer containers are not permitted (example is a concrete box or a vault).
8.The body shall be wrapped in an approved shroud according the preparation instructions.
9.The cemetery will be maintained in a meadow habitat and therefore mowed at least once a year or as necessary to manage the wild flowers and weeds. It will look like a grassy meadow with tall grass and wild flowers. (The flowers are not guaranteed)
10.The funeral director or person who is preparing the body for burial must be authorized by the cemetery to perform said preparation. Authorization may be obtained by the designated individual or institution by agreeing to comply with the preparation instructions. These instructions may be obtained by emailing Green Haven Cemetery and requesting a copy of the instructions.
11.Embalming is optional.
12.The cemetery must be notified 24 hours in advance of a burial.
13.Burials will be permitted Monday through Friday from 2 hours after sunrise until 2 hours before sunset.
14.Because this is a natural setting, the use of cemetery equipment such as artificial grass, chairs, tent and other cemetery equipment is discouraged but will be permitted when requested.
