NEW MEMORIAL GARDEN
Date: MONDAY, DEC. 4TH 2023 AT 11 A.M.
The new Franklin Cemetery Memorial Garden is completed and ready for use. Located on the old
“Potter’s Field” portion of the cemetery behind the work shed in the middle of the cemetery, it is ready
to receive ashes for scattering in the Garden.
We are very pleased with the results of this new addition to the Cemetery to enlarge the options for
burials. There are 11 (eleven) niches in the retaining walls of the Garden for ashes placement with a
bronze sealing plague for $5,000. All other burials in the Garden will be scattered amongst the ground-cover and mixed into the soil. Scattered burials in the Garden are $1750 per person for space in the Garden and $100 at the time of scattering. Designation of persons buried in the Garden will be on a 2”x7” cast bronze plaque with the person’s name and dates, attached permanently to the retaining walls of the Garden at $150.
Use of the Memorial Garden can be arranged by contacting Steve Bancroft, the Cemetery Administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Incredible scenery at every turn, and the relaxing, therapeutic smell of flowers in our garden make our cemetery a popular destination for people to walk, sit, have lunch or just relax or meditate. See our photos below to view our beautiful burial grounds.
