Cemetery Regulations for Cemetery Markers or Monuments
Headstones are personal property. All monuments within the Cemetery are the property of lot owners, their heirs, or the responsible party that ordered and placed them. All care and upkeep of the monuments is the responsibility of the owners. City crews, who exercise great care in keeping the grounds groomed, maintain the Cemetery. The City will not be responsible for inadvertent scratches and chips that occur from routine maintenance. Such happenings are a condition that goes with the privilege of placing markers in the Cemetery.
At the current time, Wellsville City Cemetery allows for upright or ground flush markers. All headstones or markers must have a concrete border six inches wide installed flush with the surface of the lawn. All permanent vases must be attached to the monument, stone base, or cast into the concrete border. Only one raised marker is permitted per grave. Family monuments must comply with this section.
All monuments must be placed within the boundary of the grave or graves of the owner in conformity with established rows.
It is recommented that monument materials be suitable to handle conditions at the Cemetery. Markers are subject to temperature extremes, snow, ice, sprinkler irrigation water, and occasional nicks or chips from mowing/maintenance equipment. It is recommended that raised markers have a rough raised base or edge rather than a polished or smooth surface. (February 2008)
