A cemetery is a unique place. While it is part of the everyday scene, it is not part of everyday life. It is a place where tranquility and quiet are the desired norm, and activities of everyday life should be suspended.
Do not play loud music in cars, with the windows down, for everyone to hear.
No running, yelling, or rolling around on the ground. This is not a place for childhood games. Don't let them play on any of the monuments. While it is good to get children used to paying respects at a cemetery, they often don't fully understand the meaning of everything in the cemetery.
Common sense leads you to know the basic shape of a grave; walk in between the headstones, and don’t stand on top of a burial place.
Most have a sign near the entrance stating hours, rules about decorations, etc. Obey these rules. Rules about decorations serve to make sure the cemetery doesn't collect too much debris that the caretakers need to clean up. Flowers and other things can blow in the wind. It would be especially nice if any trash along the way was picked up, regardless of who left it.
Most cemeteries are open from dawn to dusk.
This creates extra work for the caretakers and shows disrespect to the other families who come to mourn their loved ones. “Pack your trash” is a good rule of thumb: take your refuse with you when you go or put it in trash receptacles.
When you bring your pets, be sure to clean up after them.
Drive slowly and obey any traffic signs posted in the cemetery. Be careful to avoid any people since they might be upset and not paying complete attention to where they are going.
