UPDATE JUNE 29, 2019
Thanks you to everyone whom attended the annual lot owners meeting. The board has voted and approved for artificial flowers to now be allowed year round. The rules and regulations of the parks will be amended soon in the rules section.
I have also recently completed the digital mapping for the Mills Cemetery (Old Section) & (JS Mason Edition). You can see these new maps under the cemetery headings. I have included the names of individual burials on these maps. Please be aware these maps are composed from the handwritten records created by the Williams Funeral Directors staff in the 1970's. There are many unmarked graves in these sections and there may be inconsistencies and incorrect name spellings. If you have additional information regarding your family in these sections, please reach out to us.
Also, an updated version of the .pdf form for monument approval has been posted to the markers/monuments page.
UPDATE APRIL 4, 2019
Pricing added for the Radial Columbarium Garden. Rules and Regulations for this new section are finished and will be posted as a sub-category in the rules section.
UPDATE: MARCH 6, 2019 Notice to lot owners
Garland Memorial Park will have two projects beginning soon.
Project A will begin March 26, 2019. Contractors will be be aerating and bermuda grass seeding. Contractors ask lot owners to please remove any personal items that may impede machinery prior to this date. If it is not removed, contractors will likely dispose of the items.
Project B will also begin in March. Contractors will begin leveling and resetting markers/monuments as necessary throughout Garland Memorial and Masonic Cemeteries. Monuments with the most need will be identified and prioritized. This project will likely lasts months, possibly into 2020.
Garland Mills Cemetery Association is a local Non-Profit Foundation which assumes the care of several local Garland, Texas cemeteries including Garland Memorial Park, Garland Mills Cemetery, and the Garland Masonic Cemetery. It is our long term goal to continually improve the conditions of these local cemeteries while continuing to manage new growth and expansion. We solicit your gifts to the Cemetery Permanent Fund until such time the fund generates sufficient income to care for the cemeteries in a manner which we all desire.
