The cemeteries in Charlton are all extremely well maintained, and managed by Jim Burlingame.
During the summer months, the grass is mowed on a regular basis, and the hedges and flowering trees are neatly trimmed as well.
During the autumn, the leaves are picked up as required to maintain each of the cemeterys neat appearance. It also makes the in-ground markers free of debris and readable for visitors.
During winter months, the many roads are carefully plowed. Sand barrels are placed in various locations.
Veteran burials and Charlton Fire Fighter burials can be easily identified by small flags that are placed at the identifying marker and maintained in good condition. The veterans can be identified by Americans Flags, and the Firemen can be identified by a red Fire Fighters Flag.
Additionally, markers standing upright on a metal wire and placed near the veterans marker, identify the war in which he or she served our country.
