West Parish Garden Cemetery is committed to maintaining the spirit of Wood’s original mission. We are surrounded by protected AVIS properties, town trails, koi ponds and our Children’s Garden. Our landscaping crew is busy year-round beautifying the property. One can see a variety of animal life including the white squirrels, ducks, turtles, fish, foxes, birds, deer, and rabbits etc. We are dedicated to creating an environment that honors the deceased and provides comfort to living relatives of all ages.
Attached please find our updated policy regarding planting, decorations and upkeep of lots in the cemetery. We as the caretakers respect that grieving is a many faceted process. In the best interests of the West Parish Garden Cemetery community, we encourage as much natural beauty as possible.
Please take the time to consider your gravesite – minimize artificial mementos, tributes, and trinkets and maximize live annuals and perennials for aesthetic purposes and ease of maintenance.
