While the grounds are immaculately kept Gracelawn seems to be more attached to "following" their rules which are many and difficult to remember - then meeting the needs of grieving families. When my father passed away I wanted to stay at the grave side until he was buried and was told that I could not do this as it was an insurance risk. I'm not sure what the risk was - I certainly didn't intend to hurl myself into the grave. I simple wanted to pay my father the respect they deserved. On another occasion I wanted to place a small Canadian flag at my father's grave for Memorial day - I needed to place the flag a few days before the actual Memorial Day as I was going out of town and I was flatly refused - as again it was against their rules. Common sense doesn't seem like something the owners/managers of Gracelawn are able to work with.

March of this year we had a funeral for my hubands grandmother. His Aunts and Uncles were up here(her 2 son's and 2 daughter's) we had asked them 2 days before the funeral if they were going to need paul berrers and they said NO. The day of the funeral they said they needed some. Well, we didn't call people because they said they didn't need any. So what happened if the 2 sons had to carry their own mother to her grave. Then because it was icy out they said we would have to wait in our vehicles until she was burried and this was uspposed to be a graveside service and didn't turn out that way.
