The City of Salisbury owns and maintains seven (7) cemeteries. Those cemeteries are Chestnut Hills, Memorial Park, Oakwood, Union Hill, Old English, Old Lutheran and Dixonville.

The City of Salisbury Cemetery Division reserves the right to regulate the method of decorating graves so that a historical uniform beauty may be maintained. The placing of statues, glass figures, metal or wood objects, toys, benches, solar lights, and similar articles upon graves shall not be permitted, and if so placed, the management reserves the right to remove such articles. Flowers should be placed in an attached permanent vase or an approved vase. This standard is for the safety of our crews, especially during mowing season. Any questions in this regard may be directed to the Cemetery Division at (704) 638-5250.
