Cemeteries

The Division of Park Maintenance & Properties provides burial services and cemetery maintenance. If a family wishes to purchase a grave, they may visit the cemetery office at either 21400 Chagrin or 3942 Ridge to determine if the Cemetery of their choice has graves for sale, as not all City cemeteries are active.


Decorating and Headstone Guidelines

Cemetery Brochure

In order to maintain cemeteries in a dignified manner, and for the safety of visitors, decorating guidelines have been established:

  • Flowers will be removed three days after internment
  • Planting is only permitted in raised marker sections and must be approved by the main office prior to planting
  • Stones, rocks, fences, toys, lights, glass containers, roping off are prohibited and the cemetery reserves the right to remove any decoration deemed unsightly, hazardous or not adhering to policy
  • During the summer (April 15 to October 15), only fresh flowers are permitted
  • During the winter (November 15 to February 15), and on commemorative holidays, crosses 36 inches tall or shorter are permitted
  • Medallions and granite inserts are not permitted on headstones, only etching
  • A sketch of the headstone must be submitted to the Cemetery for approval before any work is done
  • Double stones are only permitted in lot grave sections. Both graves must be paid in full to approve stone application
