Our cemetery guidelines ensure peace and respect for all.
At Dopkins Funeral Chapel, we want to honor and respect all of the families that have chosen us to serve them and their loved ones. We also want to ensure that cemeteries are a place where any family member or friend can go to cherish the life of a loved one. After all, a cemetery is truly a sacred place.
With that in mind, here are some guidelines for ensuring that everyone who visits has the experience they desire.
Each and every person who attends a funeral service deserves privacy, respect and the freedom to reflect as they wish. Please remain away from areas where services are in progress to provide those service attendees with the privacy and respect they need and deserve.
At Dopkins Funeral Chapel we love seeing children present and participating in funeral services. However, we ask that children under the age of fifteen years be accompanied by an adult while within the cemetery or its buildings. We also ask parents to please take care of accompanying children and be responsible for their well-being and actions.
We ask that you respect our guidelines that automobiles shall not be driven through the cemetery grounds at a speed greater than ten miles per hour. This is for the safety and well-being of all. Automobiles are also not allowed to park or to come to a full stop in front of an open grave unless they are in attendance at the funeral.
Additionally, no bicycles or motorcycles shall be admitted to the cemetery except those that may be in attendance at funerals or on business.
Unfortunately, pets shall not be allowed on the cemetery grounds or in any of the buildings. Service animals are permitted of course.
