Gravesite Service Policy
On the day of your burial, we will set up 10 chairs at the gravesite. You may request more chairs if needed, and if they are available, we may add more. If there is more than one service taking place, we will not be able to provide any additional chairs. Services conducted at the chapel will be set up with 20 chairs.
The Winton Cemetery District employees shall not assist as pallbearers. If no pallbearers are provided for a burial service, it is the responsibility of the servicing mortuary to provide staff in the carrying and placing of the casket onto the lowering device.
Musical groups, hired by the family of the decedent, are permitted only during the service.
In order to serve every family in a timely manner, the cemetery allows a maximum of 1 hour for a committal service. If your services are not concluded by 3pm you will be invoiced an additional fee of $420. Your headstone will not be placed if you have any fees pending. It will not be the Winton Cemetery District employee’s responsibility to remind the families the day of the service that you exceeded your time.
All services must be scheduled at least 48 hours ahead of time. No services shall be scheduled after 2:00pm Monday – Friday. If you must schedule a service at 3pm, you will have an additional fee of $420.
You may schedule a Saturday/Holiday service for an additional fee of $600 for a full burial or $360 for a cremation burial. Saturday/Holiday services shall be concluded by 3:00pm.
No holiday services may be scheduled on Memorial Day, Thanksgiving, or Christmas.
No Sunday services will be permitted.
