Memorial Day 2022

May 1, 2022

This year we are offering several opportunities to commemorate loved ones in observance of Memorial Day. Learn more below.


FLORAL TRIBUTES

Remember a loved one this Memorial Day with a floral tribute prepared at our Greenhouse. Select from an assortment of seasonal offerings through our online store and your tribute will be placed in the Cemetery at the lot, grave, or niche specified with your order.

Families are also welcome to bring tributes purchased elsewhere for placement at the Cemetery. In accordance with our Rules & Regulations, only tributes made of natural plant material are allowed.


FLAGS

Mount Auburn has complimentary Veterans Flags available for select holidays including Memorial Day. These flags are only to be used for placement at graves within the Cemetery.

Flags will be available at our Entrance Gate the week before Memorial Day.


BIGELOW CHAPEL OPEN HOUSE

Bigelow Chapel will be open on Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29 from 12 pm – 5 pm.

Staff and volunteers will be on hand to share architectural highlights, or you are welcome to just sit and reflect in the space.


MEMORIAL CONTRIBUTIONS

Memorial contributions are used to enhance the beauty of our grounds. Individuals recognized with a Memorial Contribution will be remembered through a special exhibit at Bigelow Chapel during the Memorial Day Weekend.

Your silent tents of green
We deck with fragrant flowers;
Yours has the suffering been,
The memory shall be ours.

from “Decoration Day”
