All business (burial arrangements, pricing, work orders, complaints, etc.) should be conducted at the cemetery office. Lost and found articles should also be reported to the cemetery office. No interments will be permitted on Sundays or recognized national holidays.
Plans for mausoleums must be approved by the Board of Regents. Any memorial not of the standard material must also receive board approval. For a set dollar contribution, the cemetery will take care of providing flowers for the graveside.

The Garden of Angels
|The Cremation Garden contains areas for both above ground and below ground inurnment. It is located on the east side of the entry drive.
Lots and foundations are sold as one package in the Cremation Garden. No monuments can be more than 24" high (18" for the size of the monument plus the 6" base). The length would depend on the size of the lot, allowing a 3" space on either side. Either a monument or a small marker would be approved for each plot. Nothing may be attached or placed on the front of the niche or placed on the top of the base of the columbarium.
Only the year of birth and the year of death are allowed on the niche. A list of approved emblems that may be attached is available from the Sexton.
There is no charge for inurnment in the columbarium.
The Garden of Angels is a heart-shaped area situated on a slight hill near the cemetery entrance. Dedicated in 1983, it is specifically designated for little ones age two years and younger. This is in addition to North Babyland and South Babyland.
The purchase of lots in the Garden of Angels should be limited to accommodate children from infancy through two (2) years of age. The Board of Regents will exercise final approval of all grave markers and/or their installation.
| Oakwood Cemetery has predominantly traditional below ground grave sites. However, mausoleums—above ground interment—provide a unique memorial art form to enhance the beauty of a cemetery.
A blueprint of the area in question and placement of the mausoleum (including landscaping) should be presented to the Board of Regents before any work is done. All shrubbery must be maintained by the family. (Watering must be supervised by the Sexton.)
