All other will be removed two weeks after Memorial Day. Christmas wreaths/greens may be put on graves. Wreaths/greens and stands remaining after April 1 will be disposed of. Rosehill Cemetery reserves the right to remove any unsightly, inappropriate, or abandoned grave decorations. Upright monuments or flat markers are allowed as grave memorials. The installation of all memorials is to be approved by the sexton. All memorials are to have a cement border of at least 6 inches wide. A single grave memorial must not exceed 48 inches including the foundation. Concrete vaults or grave liners are required for all full burials. Urn vaults are recommended. Memorials, along with their maintenance and care, remain the property and responsibility of the owner.


    Cemetery grave lots are easements with burial privilege but do not constitute property ownership. As such, they may not be resold and are non-refundable. No one can be buried on a lot who is not the purchaser or a relative without approval of the Association. However, the purchaser may will his lot. Graves not assigned within 40 years of purchase revert back to Rosehill Cemetery Association. A lot which is placed on hold with intent to purchase has one year grace period to pay in full from the initial hold date. Upon failure to pay in full, the purchaser must be notified and action taken by the entire board before reselling the lot. It is the family responsibility to inform the sexton with updated contact information.


    Care of the cemetery, the hiring of labor, and the purchase of equipment shall require the approval of the cemetery board.


    These bylaws were approved by the board at a meeting called by the acting President. These bylaws may be amended at a special meeting called by the president for that specific purpose. A three-fourths majority of the board is required for an amendment.
