Rules & Guidelines

The following guidelines, rules and regulations are designed to assist you in honoring your loved ones yet keeping our cemeteries neat and orderly for all.

  • Prior authorization from the Sexton is needed before erecting any monuments, headstones, structures, fences, ornaments, decorative borders, shrubs or trees. 
  • Only flowers or plants may be left on grave sites. Please refrain from leaving food items as they attract wildlife and may create an environmental health problem. 
  • No plantings on backside of headstones. Lots run from stone forward. 
  • Please no glass containers. 
  • Any seasonal decorations are to be removed within two weeks following the season. 
  • All dogs must be on leash per Village of Wales Chapter #148-3. Please cleanup after your dog. 
  • All vehicles must remain on graveled roadways due to older burials being close to roads. 
Thank you for your consideration, 
Board of Trustees
