The City of Gladstone owns and operates Fernwood Perpetual Care Cemetery.  The cemetery is located on the North Bluff and is approximately 40 acres.  The cemetery is a public cemetery and residency is not a requirement.  The sale of lots consists of family lots (8 lots), single lots and cremation lots.  The cemetery is overseen by a Cemetery Committee, which meets periodically to review rules and regulations; violations, rates, etc.  Rules and regulations are posted at the entrance of the cemetery, at the above link or at the City Clerk's office at City Hall.

Fernwood Cemetery is open to the public, thousands of people visit Fernwood Cemetery each year, hundreds may visit in a single day.  For this reason we regret that we cannot guarantee gravestones, markers, plaques and decorations will be protected from damage or disappearance.
