Cemetery visitation hours are 8:00 am to 8:00 pm from April through September and 8:00 to 4:00 pm from October through March. All decorations, tributes and flowers must be attached to the gravestone or placed at the head of the grave so as not to interfere with regular mowing and maintenance of the cemetery.
The annual maintenance schedule is as follows: tributes placed from May through the summer will remain until the mid-August cleanup prior to Labor Day; tributes placed in September will remain until the April cleanup prior to Memorial Day.
All burials, including cremain scattering, must be authorized in advance by the official trustees of Woodberry Cemetery. The cost of a grave site is currently $300. Single graves may be purchased or sites may be purchased in groups of 2 or more. A maintenance/upkeep fee of $200 is required when each pre-purchased burial site is utilized. Cost for a cremain burial site is $300; two cremains may be buried in one grave site. All cemetery fees must be paid by cashiers check or money order payable to Woodberry Cemetery Association at least 48 hours prior to burial; cash and personal checks will not be accepted.
Effective, August 1, 2007, burials must include a vault or grave liner purchased from the funeral home at the time of burial to preserve the grave site. When liners/vaults are not utilized, there is considerable grave sinking, which requires additional soil. If sinking occurs during the first year and additional soil is required to restore the grave, the additional cost will be assessed to and paid by the grave purchaser. Owners of grave spaces may purchase grave markers and initialed corner markers of their choice from headstone companies; however, a Woodberry Cemetery trustee must be notified in advance to authorize the placement of permanent markers. Woodberry Cemetery will not bear responsibility for damage to headstones from erosion, weather, natural disaster, and normal deterioration.
