Who trims around markers? Who repairs sunken markers? Why is the finish on my marker turning green?

Trimming around bronze memorial markers is a family's responsibility. However, if you report a sunken marker or broken condition to the cemetery office we will see that it is lifted and reset. Any marker that is cracked or damaged will be repaired through the cemeteries endowment care fundon behalf of the family.

The green finish you are seeing on some bronze markers is Patina. Patina is the aging process of bronze which is the direct result of a union between bronze and chemicals in the environment. Different mixtures and climates vary the rate of development but the regular upkeep of markers is a general deterrent to this process.

In addition to a normal bronze memorial grave marker, some families want to do something extra special. Memory benches, often with special engraving, have become very popular.
