Monument Rules & Regulations
Valley View Cemetery
No permanent monument or grave marker may be placed at Valley View Cemetery unless it is constructed of granite, marble, or bronze. All foundations for monuments must be made of cement or granite. Concrete foundations shall be made with a mixture of sharp, clean sand and concrete at a ratio of five to one. Foundations shall be at least 6 inches deep and not more than 24 inches wide. All foundations for monuments are to include a cement or granite skirt of 3 inches all the way around the monument itself. No restrictions are made as to the style or height of the monuments. Vases attached to the monument must be placed on the monument as to not protrude in front of or behind the monument. It is the monument company’s responsibility to erect all monuments. Corner markers of granite or better may be placed if they do not rise above the level of the ground. They may be a maximum of 6 inches square by 12 inches deep.

Marker Placement
Government markers set flat on a concrete foundation will be set by cemetery personnel upon request. More elaborate mountings of government markers must be done by a monument company. Cemetery personnel must locate and mark proper placement for all monuments. No monument, including a foundation, skirt, and/or vase may be erected if it will encroach on alleys or spaces not owned by the purchaser or their family.

Note: Check with the cemetery personnel for the width of grave space and if space(s) are paid for in full. Monuments may be placed at the head and/or foot of a grave. (Subject to the approval of the director.)

Sunset Memorial Gardens
At Sunset Memorial Gardens no upright monument of any kind are allowed. Flush type plaques of bronze or granite grassers only are allowed; permanent vases are allowed only if they are part of the plaque. If room allows, vases may be attached to the north or south end of the plaque. All concrete foundations for plaques must be made of a ratio of 5 -1. Foundations must be at least 3 1/2 inches deep and not more than 24 inches wide. All foundations for plaques must include a cement skirt of 3 inches. No plaque may be placed without a foundation.

Marker Removal
Because of the close proximity of grave spaces, monument may be temporarily removed in order to dig graves on adjacent spaces. Cemetery personnel as soon as possible at no expense to the family will reset the monument.

Note: Check with cemetery personnel for the correct width of grave spaces. Burial rights shall be paid in full before a monument will be allowed to be placed on the grave space. At Sunset Memorial Gardens plaques are to be placed at the head of a grave only.
