Grave monuments serve as an important and lasting memorial for loved ones. The selection, purchase, installation and ongoing maintenance of permanent monuments are the sole responsibility of the grave owner(s). Family members are encouraged to work with a monument company of their choosing to determine what best meets the need, and is consistent with Fee Fee policy.
Fee Fee Cemetery has established the following policy regarding the size, type, and placement of grave monuments. It is the responsibility of the grave owner(s) to ensure the monuments are installed and maintained in compliance with this policy.
Sections A, B, C, and Old Section
Monuments may be of either flat granite or bronze type, or upright (vertical) granite structures.
Upright monuments may vary in style, size, and shape, but shall be generally consistent with similar monuments in the same section. Final approval of style, size, shape, and placement in these sections is at the sole discretion of the Fee Fee Cemetery Association.
Flat or bronze monuments shall follow the same requirements as for Sections D, E, and Cremation Garden noted below.
Sections D, E, and Cremation Garden
Monuments must be of either flat granite or bronze type, and shall be flush with the surrounding soil.
If bronze type, there shall be a 2-inch border around the bronze plate.
Flat granite monuments and the base for bronze monuments shall be at least 4 inches thick.
The maximum size of a monument base for all single graves shall not exceed 33 inches in width by 14 inches in length. The base can be either granite or concrete. Note: the 33-inch maximum width also applies to double-deep graves, two cremation interments in a single grave, or a standard interment with a single cremation interment on top.
The maximum size of a monument base in the Cremation Garden shall not exceed 30 inches in width by 14 inches in length.
The maximum size of a monument base for all companion/double (side-by-side) graves shall not exceed 48 inches in width by 14 inches in length. The base can be either granite or concrete. These larger monuments are not allowed in the Cremation Garden.
The monument company shall install a base/foundation sufficient to support the weight of the entire structure for long-term stability.
Monuments are to be installed so that they line up with other monuments in the respective Block. The cemetery shall be contacted for proper location and alignment before a monument is placed at a grave site. Improperly installed or located monuments will have to be corrected at the expense of the grave owner(s).
Bronze vases may be cast as part of the bronze monument, however the cemetery does not guarantee the vases will not be stolen. Round concrete or granite vase base with an aluminum insert may be installed flush with the surrounding soil. All types of vases shall have a drain hole.
It is natural for some shifting and settling of the soil to occur over a number of years, which may result in monuments becoming tilted or un-level. Restoration of monuments to their intended position, as with any other maintenance, is the sole responsibility of the grave owner(s).
