Regulations for Cedar Brook Burial Ground, Inc.

Cedar Brook Burial Ground (CBBG) is a natural, green cemetery with the goal of preserving the area in its natural state, therefore the following regulations must be followed:

Only native plants are allowed.  No geraniums, pansies, etc. or plastic flowers, as well as no flags, or other ornamentation shall be placed on the grave sites.  Containers or bouquets of flowers that are placed at the grave site on the day of the funeral will be removed after the burial.

All burial containers, whether a wooden coffin, shroud, body bag, or container for cremated remains, must be biodegradable.

CBBG is open to everyone 24/7, 365 days a year.  The road may be closed to vehicle traffic a day or two during rainy, muddy spring weather so as to preserve the roadway. Pedestrians have access at all times and any vehicles may be left in the driveway leading to our house during this time.

Winter burials are possible and in fact several have occurred this past winter.

An uncut field stone to mark your grave site may be selected from the CBBG property for free. You may bring a similar one from your property, if so desired.  All stones must be aid flat to the ground.  Stones may be engraved with the deceased’s name, dates of birth and death and any inscriptions or designs the family wishes.  NO POLISHED OR COLORED STONES.  If you have any questions regarding a stone you are considering, please contact me at 207-637-2085 or cbbg@roadrunner.com

A local engraver, Blasted in Stone, owned by Scott and Kari Kelly of Standish, engraves stones for a reasonable price.  For more information they may be contacted by telephone at 207-642-5300, via email at blastedinstone@fairpoint.net or though their web page at www.blastedinstone.com

Thank you for your understanding and acceptance of these regulations.
