Cemetery Rules & Regulations
It is the desire of the City to make the Bangor Municipal Cemeteries
quiet, beautiful resting place for the dead where a sense of repose
will be obtained by dignified landscape effects on a well-maintained
lawn. To secure these effects, the City has spent and will continue
to expend considerable sums of money. Preserving these effects will
require the cooperation of every lot owner. Anything which would mar
the general beauty and harmony of the cemeteries must be avoided. Peace
and good order must prevail, and the sacredness of the place must be
maintained at all times. It is to this end that these rules and regulations
have been made effective, and the suggestions as contained herein are
