Santa Ana Cemetery and Headstone Cleaning and Re-Inking

Santa Ana Cemetery Cleaning and Re-Inking

Does your family have a headstone that has gotten too dirty to read or see any of the engraving on? Or, over the years the ink has faded and chipped out of your granite headstone? Maybe the hard water used for irrigation has left mineral deposits on your flat granite headstone leaving it with a gray white haze? These are all very common problems at all cemeteries but especially cemeteries that have been around for a long time such as Santa Ana District Cemetery. Other than creating beautiful flat granite headstones, bronze markers, and bronze cremation niche plates for Santa Ana Cemetery we also offer onsite services. Some of our onsite services at Santa Ana Cemetery include onsite grave side engraving, granite headstone cleaning and granite headstone re-inking and photo replacements. If you and your family are in need of our onsite services when you contact us it is a great help if you can send us a clear photo of the existing headstone so we can see what condition it is in and what will need to be done to it so we can give you a quote right away.

Those seeking help with burial arrangements can go to Orange County Cemetery District’s website for contact information (e-mail and phone numbers are given). Contact the Santa Ana Cemetery manager rather than the general manager. There is also an on-site business office where you can meet with a district representative. Burial sites can be selected and burial rights obtained from a representative. You will normally need to pay cash upfront for the site as well as a payment for the future care of the grave site (the Endowment Care Fund). A relative or authorized person must sign an interment order before a certificate of burial rights can be obtained. You can discuss any issues related to grave stones, inscriptions, etc. with the representative. As to times of service, be aware that there are no burials on the following holidays: Christmas, Thanksgiving, 4th of July, Memorial Day, Labor Day, and New Year’s Day. Also be aware that there is an extra charge if the burial occurs on a Saturday, Sunday, or certain holidays, and that three days notice are required in such instances. As to time of day, all burials occur between nine a. m. and two p.m.

If planning to attend a funeral scheduled at Santa Ana Cemetery, you should know that you can access burial service dates and times online and that once you arrive there will be colored arrows to direct you to the gravesite. Also be careful to follow cemetery rules. For example, pets must keep off the grassy areas and be leashed, and pictures and video cameras can only be used after obtaining a permit. If bringing flowers or other grave decorations, you should know that all decorations are removed every Wednesday (except on certain holidays).

Those interested in the cemetery’s historical significance will desire to read the new booklet by Patricia Boardman of the Santa Ana Historical Preservation Society entitled “A Walk to Remember.” It can be purchased for $10 on-site or downloaded for free from the website. The booklet provides a map and 75 short biographies of early pioneers of Orange County buried at the cemetery, along with a few photographs. A guided foot tour of the cemetery by the same society will occur on October 22nd beginning at adjacent Fairhaven Memorial Park. It will go over names mentioned in the booklet. The Santa Ana Cemetery is more than a century old and is of great historical interest. For more information on Santa Ana Cemetery Ca, contact American Headstones at (949) 228-7055 or email
