Please note the following:
• All flowers must be planted in movable containers with handles
• The Township will remove all floral designs, flowers, weeds, trees, shrubs, plants or herbage if it becomes unsightly, dangerous, detrimental or diseased
• All trees planted on or removed from any grave sites must be done by the Township
• The Township may remove all wreaths and flowers in late fall
• Footings will be installed by the Township only, after both/all parties named on the headstone are buried



Fall Cemetery Cleanup

The Township maintenance staff conducts a fall clean-up in the cemetery each year at the end of October. Families are asked to pick up floral arrangements and/or any loose items that are now on their family grave sites. During the cleanup process, floral arrangements, both real and artificial, that are not in typical cemetery containers (such as cement urns or baskets with a handle) and any loose items that have not yet been picked up by family members will be discarded. The only exception will be floral arrangements for burials which took place in the months of September and October.


Cemetery Records

Complete burial records are available for research or genealogy by contact Clerk Laurie Richards at 616-895-6295, extension 6, or e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
