Flowers and shrubs

In-ground flowers may be planted within one foot of the headstone not to exceed the width of the base. No other planting or appurtenances are allowed on any cemetery lot unless placed there by or at the discretion of the Commission. When such in-ground flowers as mentioned above become unsightly or in any way a detriment to Williamstown Cemeteries, they will be removed with no liability to Williamstown Cemeteries and employees. The Commission and employees shall have the authority, with no liability, to remove all floral decorations, appurtenances, flags, shrubs, plants, pots, containers, or herbage of any kind which in the judgment of the Commission have become unsightly or not in compliance with cemetery rules. It is recommended that all cut flowers be placed in an invertible in-ground vase.

A person may not place, deposit, or maintain, or cause to be placed, deposited or maintained, any plastic flowers, floral displays, wreaths, or similar devices, upon a grave or the burial grounds contained within Williamstown Cemeteries.

Monument foundation vendors

The Cemetery Commission is putting together a list of vendors who are interested in doing foundations in the Cemeteries in Williamstown. If you would like to be added to the list, call the chairman.
