Memorial Day 2021
This year we are offering several opportunities to commemorate loved ones in observance of Memorial Day. Learn more about our seasonal floral tribute options, our flag policy, and how to view year’s Virtual Service of Commemoration.
SERVICE OF COMMEMORATION
Mount Auburn’s Service of Commemoration is held each May against the backdrop of our spectacular spring landscape. This year, we offer a pre-recorded program of words and music to console and to inspire as you remember all those whom you have lost.
We are no longer accepting orders for the Memorial Day Season of Remembrance but you may bring a tribute purchased elsewhere for placement at a grave or lot. In accordance with our Rules & Regulations, only tributes made of natural plant material are allowed.
Because our Greenhouse is currently closed to the public, we will not be offering walk-up or in-person floral tribute sales at the Cemetery this Memorial Day.
All Mother’s Day and Memorial Day Tributes will be removed from the grounds starting June 14, 2021.
IRRIGATION SYSTEM UPDATE
At this time, our irrigation system is not working and therefore the standpipes throughout the Cemetery are not able to dispense water. There is a temporary standpipe available at the entrance to the greenhouse road. You can either fill up a watering can there or bring your own from home. We’re sorry for this inconvenience.
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 are currently available at our Entrance Gate.
Memorial contributions are used to enhance the beauty of our grounds. Individuals recognized with a Memorial Contribution will be remembered at our annual Service of Commemoration.
