My mother worked for a florist on Bold Street. Before the funeral of a well to do family she would be sent to this cemetery to line the inside of the grave with flowers. She would go down into the grave and put up chicken wire, then cover the wire with greenery then add flowers. This would have been in the early 1930ís. Does anyone remember this being done. She worked at Bees on Bold Street.
