  • This is a final resting place and an active cemetery. Please be respectful of funeral services, as well as the cemetery grounds.

  • No bicycles, skateboards or roller skates/roller blades are allowed on cemetery grounds.

  • The cemetery welcomes responsible dog owners and their dogs. Dogs should be kept on leashes at all times. Dog waste should be cleaned up. Waste disposal boxes are located throughout the cemetery grounds.

  • Filming or photography within the cemetery will not interfere with normal cemetery operations, disrupt the peaceful ambiance of the cemetery or violate a family's expressed desire for privacy.

  • Any professional photography, intended for publication or commercial use, may be permitted only with written consent of Easton Cemetery.

  • Cemetery management retains the right to approve, disapprove or halt filming or photography that interferes with normal cemetery operations, violates a family's expressed desire for privacy or depicts the Easton Cemetery inaccurately and/or negatively.
