1. Interments in a lot are restricted to those entitled to burial therein as permitted by law. The lot owner must file permission for burial of those not entitled to burial according to the said section, with the Canandaigua Cemetery Association. Owners may not allow interments on their lots in consideration of payment thereof.

2. Except as provided by law, a lot owner may not transfer his lot.

3. The full purchase price must be paid before a deed will be issued or a burial allowed on the lot.

4. Maximum of two interments/inurnments per grave. Full-size graves are permitted one casket and one cremains OR two cremains. Graves in the “cremation only” sections and the columbaria are permitted two cremains.

5. The scattering of cremated remains is not permitted. Any person or persons found to be scattering such cremains will be assessed the cremation inurnment fee.

6. Sections designated for infant interments are restricted to such. No cremains, other than that of infants, shall be interred.

7. The Canandaigua Cemetery Association reserves the right to remove, after due notice to the lot owner, any effigy or inscription which, in the opinion of the majority of the trustees, is unsightly or dangerous.

8. No vault or mausoleum shall be built above ground without the permission of the Board of Trustees and upon payment of appropriate fees; and then only in such location as they may approve.

Should there be any for which burial instructions have not been received by that time, they will be removed and interred. If not entitled to burial in a family plot, they will be interred in single graves, and the expense of such interments shall be borne by those who caused the bodies to be placed in the vault. In cases of this kind such notice as shall be practical under the circumstances shall be given.
