Individual Service

Harlingen Reformed Church Cemetery, Belle Mead Cemetery, New Jersey

Men and women who have worked as firefighters either as volunteers or as full-timers have their service commemorated in the cemetery in a number of ways.  Sometimes there are communal plots where the departed members are buried together around a memorial or monument.  In some cases they are buried together in communal tombs.  Most often, however, their service is marked by a metal marker that is placed next to their gravestone.  The markers almost resemble a badge and almost always display some of the tools and iconography associated with firefighting such as the hook and ladder, the distinctive hat, the bugle, and the nozzle.
