Removal Information for all
Grave, Crypt and Niche Decorations in
Catholic Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of St. Louis

 



Please limit decorations to two per grave.

The Cemetery reserves the right to remove and discard any excess for the overall maintenance and appearance of the Cemetery on graves, crypts and niches.

Potted plants, votive and solar lights, eternal flames, balloons, shepherd hooks, bird houses, wind chimes and other unsightly decorations are not appropriate in a cemetery. Please be aware of the sensitivities of others and note that all materials used are to have a religious motif in keeping with the sacred nature of the cemetery.

For the Christmas season, grave coverings, wreaths on easels, poinsettias in cones and 12-18" Christmas trees are permitted.
 
In the months of February through November, decoration removal will be
the 2nd Wednesday and following Thursday of each month.

When a cemetery holiday falls in a "removal week", decoration removal will be postponed until the following week.
e.g.  Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, etc.
