Welcome to Cypress Hills CemeteryCypress Hills Cemetery was founded on November 21, 1848. It is chartered by New York State as a non-profit, non-sectarian, membership corporation. Under construction for near three years, it officially opened in 1851.
Today, despite the constantly increasing population and a demand for interment space from families throughout the New York City metropolitan area, Cypress Hills Cemetery has a large amount of beautifully developed land sufficient to serve future generations.
The cemetery is located in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn, and encompasses 225 acres and is easily reached via the J line at the Cypress Hills station, approximately 45 minutes from Manhattan.
Cypress Hills Cemetery, remains dedicated to maintaining the same character and vision of its founders. Years of careful planning and maintenance have preserved and enhanced the beauty and serenity of Cypress Hills Cemetery.
