Items on graves
RPCV would like to clarify It is not the intention to remove everything from grave locations, only items that make areas unsafe, cause damage to sites or encroach on other memorial spaces, lawn, shrubs or trees.
Vases and trinkets made of durable weatherproof materials such as granite, uv stable resins/plastics, stable concrete that will not topple and metal without any sharp edges or spikes are welcomed along with fresh, dried, and artificial flowers.
Candles and incense sticks may be placed within an approved container (such as a candilly box) or communal facility where provided. As an alternative, appropriately placed plastic LED candles may be used.
The safety of the community and staff is of the utmost importance.
We appreciate your assistance in working with us on our flower and ornament guidelines which allow visitors to place items at memorial sites and enable us to meet our duty of care to the community and staff.
