Funeral Homes & Contractors
The city does not perform burial services. It is the responsibility of the loved ones to make arrangements for the burial site excavation and backfill services. These can be performed by a funeral home, private contractor or the loved ones themselves. There are specific location, size and placement requirements so please check with the clerk’s office if you are unsure. It is also important that the ground is left clean and level upon completion of the burial.
Temporary & Permanent Markers
A permanent marker is required to be placed within one year of the burial. There are specific material, size and placement requirements, so please check with the clerk’s office if you are unsure. Although a temporary marker is not required by code, it is strongly encouraged, and very much appreciated!
The city is responsible for maintaining the general appearance of the cemeteries. Please contact he Parks & Recreation Department at 907-224-4055 for approval prior to planting trees, shrubs or flowers on a gravesite.
