Park Regulations

The staff of Carolina Memorial Parks takes great pride in caring for the memorial gardens and mausoleums that serve as the final places for so many from our communities.  Information regarding the rules and regulations that safeguard the appearance of our beautiful memorial parks follows.
Flower Removal Days
The first Monday in November and the first Monday in March are set aside for memorial garden flower removal.  This bi-annual cleaning provides for the removal of all park flowers, ensuring that aging arrangements do not distract from the seasonal splendor of the parks' lovely landscapes.
Flower Rules and Regulations
Removal of Unsightly or Dangerous Living Plants and/or Flowers
The Cemetery Authority recognizes that living flowers will be brought to the Cemetery and will unquestionably add immeasurable beauty.  Nevertheless, it is the Cemetery Authority's policy to encourage the custom of placing freshly cut flowers in authorized vases; but the Cemetery Authority reserves the right, but does not assume the obligation, to have employees remove and discard such flowers when they wither and die, or when, it is the sole judgment of the Cemetery Authority that they have become unsightly, dangerous or do not conform to the standards of the Cemetery.  Approved vases are on display at the administrative building. 
Removal of Unsightly or Dangerous Artificial Plants and/or Flowers
Artificial and other quality cloth flowers are permitted within the Cemetery. However, the Cemetery Authority, its officer, directors, employees, agents and representatives shall, in no way, be liable for any damage that such flowers might cause, directly or indirectly. The Cemetery Authority further reserves the right, but does not assume the obligation, to remove and discard such flowers or arrangements when its sole judgment of the Cemetery Authority that they have become unsightly, dangerous or do not conform to the standards of the Cemetery.

Floral Decorations outside Authorized Vases

These decorations should not encroach on an adjacent grave space, niche or crypt.  With the exception of Christmas, placement may be made during the week before the holiday and will be removed on the tenth day following the occasion and disposed of at that time.  Christmas wreaths and winter decorations may be placed anytime after the Friday before Thanksgiving and will be removed by the Cemetery Authority on or about the 10th day following Christmas.
Removal of Congested Flowers and Decorations
If, in the sole judgment of the Cemetery Authority an area has become congested with flower or decorations, the Cemetery Authority may, at its sole descretion, remove a portion of flowers or decorations without liability to any Owner or any third party.
