PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING RULES AND REGULATIONS CAREFULLY AS THEY EFFECT THE MANAGEMENT OF THE COLUMBARIUM AND ALL CERTIFICATE HOLDERS!

Introduction

All niche spaces are sold subject to rules and regulations, which are essential for the preservation of the Columbarium. Therefore, in order that you may assist us in properly maintaining the Columbarium area, and in consideration of all other niche certificate-holders, we ask that you observe faithfully the following rules and regulations which have been established by The Cemetery of St. Anthony's Columbarium. These regulations shall apply to all niches now in existence or which may hereafter be established or erected.

Regulations

  • The cost of the niche space includes the inscription, inscribed cross and endowment care. An opening charge will be made at the time of the inurnment.

  • There may be one or two inurnments per niche.

  • No wooden, tin or cardboard urns are permitted.

  • The inscription for the niches is: First Name, Middle Initial, Last Name, Year of Birth and Year of Death and inscribed cross.

  • Please check with the Cemetery Office prior to purchasing an urn for the Columbarium's. Cemetery Management must approve all urns.

  • The urn cannot exceed 10 1/4" in height, width and depth for single inurnments. If there will be two inurnments then the size of each urn is smaller, no bigger than 10 1/4" height x 5" wide.

  • No inurnment will be permitted until full payment has been made for the niche unit and the opening charge.

  • No inurnment will be permitted until full payment has been made for the niche unit and the opening charge. At the time of an inurnment, balances and opening charges must be made using a money order, bank check or funeral home check. No credit card or personal checks may be used. The Cemetery does not accept cash. MONEY ORDERS, BANK CHECKS AND FUNERAL HOME CHECKS ARE TO BE MADE PAYABLE TO: ST. ANTHONY'S CEMETERY.

  • Prior to inurnment religious services will be conducted in the Columbarium area.

  • Only employees of the Cemetery of St. Anthony will open niches.

  • Only a small arrangement of cut flowers will be permitted in the containers located in designated areas. Artificial flowers are not allowed. No flowers or items are permitted in the columbarium area. Any items in the columbarium area will be removed and disposed of immediately. As flower space is limited, only ONE arrangement per niche is allowed. The maximum size of the arrangement is 10" high by 4" wide. All objects that violate these regulations will be removed.

  • Other decorative and/or devotional objects are not allowed. Personal effects including photographs, balloons, stuffed animals, lights and other memorabilia are not permitted. No items may be attached or affixed to the niche fronts. Objects that violate these regulations will be removed.

  • Because the Cemetery is open to the public, it is impossible to control the activity of every visitor. The Cemetery Management cannot guarantee items from damage or disappearance.

  • These regulations may be added to, rescinded, amended, changed, altered, repealed, and/or modified from time to time by Cemetery Management without notice.

  • In all matters not specifically covered by these regulations, the Cemetery Management reserves the right to take such action, which in its judgment is deemed fair and reasonable in the circumstances, and such determination, shall be binding upon the Recorded Certificate Holder and all parties concerned.

  • Special cases may arise in which the literal enforcement of a regulation may impose unnecessary hardship. The Cemetery Management, therefore, reserves the right to the make exceptions, suspensions, and/or modifications of any of these regulations, without notice, when in the judgment of the Cemetery Management, such action appears necessary; such temporary exception, suspension and/or modification shall in no way be construed as affecting the general applications of such regulations.
