Pricing of Products & Services

All services and products at our cemetery have set pricing which is contained in an official Cemetery Price List which is filed with the New York State Division of Cemeteries (part of the New York State Department of State). The Cemetery Price List is available for review at the property upon request. The complete Cemetery Price List is too cumbersome to place on a website.
