The cemetery is divided into sections allowing for different types of markers and burials and include:
- Upright Section
This is the oldest section of the cemetery, located closest to Highway 56, and the only section where upright markers are allowed.
- Flat Marker Section
The flat marker section is immediately north of the upright section, and extends to the northern boundary of the cemetery. For maintenance purposes, no permanent memorabilia or plantings are allowed in this section.
The purpose of a flat marker section in a cemetery is to reduce costs for maintenance. Because of this reduction, the fee for perpetual care is less than what is charged for the upright section. In order to reduce our maintenance costs in our flat marker sections, from April 1 through September 30, Greenlawn Cemetery does not allow artificial flowers, potted plants, statues, vases or any other type of memorabilia except for Memorial Day. Memorabilia may be placed on flat marker sites from three days before Memorial Day through the third day after the holiday. At that time, any memorabilia left on the flat marker grave sites will be removed. We are not responsible for returning any items that have been left beyond three days after Memorial Day.
Memorabilia can be placed on gravesites in the flat marker section from October 1 to March 31. Fresh flowers can be placed on a grave site if they can be swept into the grass and mowed over.
The Town of Berthoud has one columbarium unit with 48 niches. Each niche can be purchased for a single burial, or we allow two burials per niche. In addition to the cost to purchase the niche, there is a charge for the plaque that identifies the cremains within.
- Markers for Sale
The Town has a relationship with a company providing flat markers ranging in price from $400 and up. There are photos available for viewing at Town Hall and staff is happy to work with you in creating the design of the marker. There is a fee of $100 to place a regular flat marker and a $200 fee to place a flat marker that also has a vase. The placement fees are applicable whether you choose to order your marker through the Town or a third party.
The cemetery was originally purchased by three of the early settlers of the Town, Davis Baxter, Lewis Cross and John Kerr. When the lots were put up for sale, the price was $10.00 for a block of ten burial sites. The first burial was that of Mrs. Calvin (Ida) Cross, who died on January 19, 1884. The Town of Berthoud assumed ownership of Greenlawn Cemetery in June, 1905.
