Under New Management

As of March 1, 2018 Abington Hills Cemetery is under new management. We have some great plans to improve the cemetery, and we would love to hear from you if you have any concerns or ideas. We are always willing to listen. We want to know what we can do to improve your experience with us - and please, let us know what we've done right in the past!

If you have any questions, ideas or concerns - please visit our Contact page and send us an email or give us a call!

Toppled Monuments

 

One of the most common questions we receive is regarding monuments (headstones) that have toppled over. This is usually the result of natural shifts in the ground over time. Wildlife is also responsible for some toppled monuments.

Monuments are private property, and as a rule, our cemetery staff does not raise fallen monuments. If you need to have a monument reset, please call your preferred Monument services ,

Sinking Graves

 

As a rule, a new grave will continually sink as the ground settles. This process can take two months or longer. Once our staff feels that the ground has finished settling, we will level the grave with dirt and plant grass seed.

Please keep in mind that because of this natural settling, we will wait at least two months before allowing a monument to be placed at the head of a new burial.

Dog Walkers

 

Though our official cemetery regulation prohibit dogs in the cemetery, we welcome responsible dog owners on cemetery grounds.

Please be respectful of private property. Do not allow your dogs near headstones and decorations. Always pick up your dog's waste.

Dogs must be kept on a hand-held leash at all times. Please be careful with small dogs, as they may catch the eye of some birds of prey which often circle the cemetery.

Placing Flowers

 

We welcome our visitors to place flowers and other small decorations at a loved one's final resting place.You may place these items in an 8 inch circumference around a monument or marker.

 

Please be advised:

  • The cemetery removes damaged/old items from graves on a two week cycle.

  • Unfortunately, theft and vandalism may occur. We strongly suggest not leaving valuable items at graves. The cemetery is not responsible for stolen and damaged items.

  • Do not place edible flowers at a grave. Deer and other wildlife enjoy eating these flowers.

We look forward to answering any questions your might have!
