Absolutely no lot modifications are permitted in Williamsburg Memorial Park. The only exception is our Private and Family Estate lots. Modifications to these areas are allowed, but only after you have received written permission. To request a lot modification, please use our 24/7 Contact Form and select “Lot Modification”.
The following decorations are permitted in all sections of our park. Please note that Williamsburg Memorial Park is not responsible for the security and/or care of any decorative items placed at a gravesite, or the replacement of items taken or damaged. Expensive items and family heirlooms should be avoided. When handling bronze vases, gloves are recommended as spiders and other insects will often nest in the underground compartment. Deer frequent our cemetery year round and will graze on fresh flowers, so please keep that in mind when making your decorative selections.
