Dayton Memorial Park Cemetery is a modern interment park. A high standard of efficiency as well as the protection of the Interment Right Owner* has resulted in the creation over time of “Conditions and Restrictions” which control and govern the use of every location in Dayton Memorial Park Cemetery (Cemetery). These “Conditions and Restrictions” are periodically reviewed, revised and approved by the Cemetery Board of Trustees.
While some may appear arbitrary, each, however, has been adopted for the specific purpose of protecting and insuring the rights of the Owner, as well as the care and maintenance of the Cemetery. Their purpose is to make and keep it a beautiful and orderly place, where in dignified quiet we may visit the resting place of our deceased.
These “Conditions and Restrictions,” along with the “Rules and Regulations” of the Cemetery, have been formulated after much careful consideration and long experience. They are for the benefit of Owners, both individually and collectively. It is expected that they will be duly appreciated and properly respected. Individual rights and preferences must be subject to them, if harmony and decorum are to prevail in the Cemetery.
They apply without exception to every Owner, and to every visitor to Dayton Memorial Park Cemetery. Every interment right in the Cemetery is sold subject to the following conditions, restrictions and reservations, and each person who accepts a “Certificate of Burial Rights” is bound by them and agrees that:
*Interment Right Owner. It is important to note that when you purchase Cemetery “property” you are purchasing interment/burial rights only. The Cemetery always continues to own the property/property rights and can, therefore, govern the use of the property. Interment Rights do not imply or include normal property rights.
Markers must be of granite or bronze with a granite backer. All flat markers are to be set flush with the ground.
Monuments must be of granite. Marble monuments are not permitted. Monuments may be placed in the monument space adjacent to any single or multiple graves if the graves and monument space have common ownership. Inscriptions of family names and individual names are only permitted over owned graves. Extensive inscriptions other than names, such as designs or poems, must be submitted to the office in writing for approval by the Management.
The Cemetery is not responsible for damage or loss of any plants, vases, glassware, crockery, trees or shrubs. Any unauthorized person found removing plants or any other decorations or damaging property on the Cemetery grounds will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Decoration of Graves (All Graves)
All shepherd hooks or any other plant hinging devices are prohibited.
