These guidelines were established by Oak Grove Cemetery for the maintenance and upkeep of the property.
In a traditional size grave, four cremations may be allowed in one casket.
Lowering the Casket
Lowering the casket into the grave as part of the Internment Service is only allowed if the family of the deceased requests it prior to the burial service. Only City Cemetery personnel will be allowed to operate the lowering device. Cremains may be placed in the grave by family members at any burial service.
- Only one upright monument may be erected on two adjacent graves, which shall be of 42” high including the base and no more than 24” wide, or the stone must be flush with the ground.
- Only two stones will be allowed on a traditional size grave, one at the headend of the grave and a flat stone at the footend of the grave.
- All work must be completed as fast as possible under the inspection of the Superintendent, and materials not used must be removed as the work is completed.
- More specific information is available in the Cemetery office, or by contacting Tom Eaton at 508-324-2750.
Transfer of Graves and Lots
No sale or transfer of graves shall be valid without the expressed written consent of the City, endorsed and entered on records by the City.
