The health and safety of our families continues to be a top priority.
As we have in past, we are following all protocols outlined by the CDC and State of Massachusetts
The Gardens will continue to be accessible by the public from dawn till dusk. If you are looking for a loved one, you can find their resting place by going to our website: https://thegardenscemetery.org/looking-for-a-loved-one/.
However, if you are feeling sick with a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, see your primary care physician and please do not visit the cemetery.
Services and Ceremonies will continue at pre-pandemic levels.
Pictures and video are encouraged for sharing with loved ones who could not attend. Please designate 1 person for pictures and/or video.
Social Distancing at Services– Still Practice proper social distancing by staying at least 3 feet apart from other people. If someone is coughing excessively or displaying symptoms of any type of illness, they may be asked to return to their vehicle. We will take individual requests for comfort and convenience- our decisions will be made on the health and safety of all attendees.
The Welcome Center is open and masks are voluntary. If you are not fully vaccinated, you may want to wear a mask.
