Park Lawn Funeral Home Cemetery Information
Because Memorial Park and Green Lawn Cemetery is the largest privately owned cemetery in the state of Missouri, keeping it inviting and beautiful for all is extremely important to us. Therefore, we have compiled a list of rules that we ask all patrons to follow.
Park Lawn Funeral Home allows real or artificial bouquets in permanent bronze vases. Cemetery personnel will not disturb the artificial bouquets in permanent vases unless they appear weathered.
Other real or artificial bouquets, potted (plastic pot) flowers and baskets are permitted. During mowing season (March 1 to October 31) these decorations are subject to removal at any time except Memorial Day (see below). Tin, glass or wire objects are dangerous to mowing equipment, the person operating it and cemetery visitors in the area and are prohibited.
From November 1st to March 1st, winter decorations may be left on graves and will not be disturbed by cemetery personnel unless it becomes necessary to make a new burial in the immediate area. Every effort will be made to return the decorations properly following the interment. Beginning at 7:00 a.m. on March 1st, all decorations will be removed during our spring cleanup as we prepare for the mowing season. Our personnel will not disturb decorations in permanent bronze vases.
Memorial Day decorations may be placed on graves 7 days prior to Memorial Day and will be left undisturbed until 6 days after Memorial Day. Removal of all grave decorations not in a permanent bronze vase begins at 7:00 am Monday morning.
Fresh, Artificial, or any other decorations or containers are subject to removal from a new grave 5 days following the interment. If you wish to keep any items, please remove them from the grave as soon as possible. Cemetery Hours: 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. — October to April 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. — May to September.
Please call us with any questions or concerns.
