For more than 100 years, the City of Burlington, as a service to citizens, has provided and maintained Pine Hill Cemetery, Brown's Chapel Cemetery circa 1840's, Northlawn Cemetery and Rest Haven Cemetery as a tranquil, aesthetic setting offering traditional grave sites. Now, we are proud to extend to you another option-the Columbarium at Pine Hill Cemetery. Today, the choice of cremation over in-ground burial is increasing. The City is now fully prepared to accommodate those who choose cremation.
The administering and maintaining of the cemetery grounds is the responsibility of the City's Cemetery and Grounds Division. The maintenance is perpetual in nature. This means the City will always be responsible for the mowing and trimming of grass and other duties required to maintain a pleasing appearance.
Visitation hours are from sunrise to sunset at all three cemeteries.
Flowers placed on graves during burial will be removed five days after the date of the burial. Should the family desire flowers to remain longer, prior arrangements must be made with the cemetery and grounds superintendent. Flowers placed on graves after interment will be allowed to remain until they become unsightly, at which time they will be removed. Flowers blown from graves will be discarded.
The Cemetery and Grounds Division does not install, maintain or assume responsibility for grave markers. These arrangements should be made through the funeral director or monument company. There are specific guidelines which govern the installation of grave markers. Contact the cemetery and grounds superintendent for further information.
The Cemetery and Grounds Division will gladly answer any questions you have regarding municipal cemeteries. Please call 222-5077 or visit the cemetery and grounds superintendent's office, 234 E. Summit Avenue between the hours of 7:30am and 4pm Monday through Friday.
