When burial arrangements are not made ahead of time and the wishes of the deceased are not expressed, families often are forced to rush into decisions complicated by grief, stress and confusion. We encourage families to pre-arrange a burial lot or cremation niche or crypt in advance to avoid being overwhelmed when the time comes. At Cypress Hills Cemetery, our ultimate goal is to provide guidance and counsel with the utmost compassion and consideration.
There are two types of in-ground burial options we provide.
Graves for two burials allow for a Flat Marker to be placed as a memorial. The measurements for a flat marker are 1′ x 2′ x 0.6″
Graves for three burials allow for an upright monument. The measurements of an upright monument are 2.6″ x 1.10″ x 0.8″
Monuments can be erected anytime after the burial and are to be purchased outside the cemetery at a certified monument dealer.
