Visitation Etiquette: Some Things You Need to Know
We are occasionally asked about visiting the three cemeteries under the care of the Association. Here are some items you need to know.
-We ask that you contact the Association by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide us with your full name, phone and/or email address and which site you wish to visit.
-If you are looking for historical information send your inquiry to us in advance since it helps expedite the process. We encourage you to use the Search box on this blog site. You may find what you are looking for here.
-If you are visiting from out-of-town or from out-of-state let us know when you wish to visit -the sooner the better.
-Be respectful. Yes, this makes common sense, we hope.
-Do not leave any trash whatsoever.
-Stone-rubbing is not permitted. Photography is permitted.
-We ask that you not leave memorials such as coins, flowers, photos and so on.
-We remind all that the three isolated family plots under our direct care and stewardship are not public cemeteries. Family descendants are certainly permitted to visit the graves of their ancestors.
-There are designated rights-of-ways that connect the cemeteries to the roads and streets for purposes on ingress and egress. Please do not stray on to the properties of our neighbors.
-There are many Mead ancestors interred in other cemeteries and burying grounds around Greenwich. Rules vary with each.
If you have any further questions kindly contact the Association by email at email@example.com. Thank you.
