New Rules for all Harlem Township Cemeteries, effective April 1, 2012

Comments made by visitors to our cemeteries have led us to implement new rules for decorations and upkeep. These new rules will go into effect April 1st this year.

  1. Only annual flowers are permitted on gravesites and should be planted not further than 12” (twelve inches) from the headstone.

  2. Woody stemmed perennials, shrubs, and/or trees are prohibited.

  3. Artificial floral arrangements, wreaths, and/or grave blankets are permitted.

  4. Decorative ornaments, pavers, solar lights, edging stones, and/or gravel are prohibited.

  5. On or about April 1st and October 1st of each year, township personnel will be cleaning the cemeteries. Trustees reserve the right to remove any item deemed objectionable. If you wish to retain any items listed in 3), please remove prior to these dates.
