Traditional Graves

There are graves available in most of our cemeteries. When purchasing a grave space, important considerations include the location you prefer, the number of graves needed and the type of monument or headstone you would like to place. Traditional graves are for a traditional casket burial but can also allow for cremation burial.


Cremation Benches & Outdoor Cremation Benches/Boulders

Cremation graves are available in most of our cemeteries. Cremation grave spaces can be purchased for the burial of up to four cremated remains per space depending on the cemetery and location you choose. Many grave options with a variety of headstone options are available. For example, Resurrection Section in Holy Cross Cemetery in Malden has cremation graves that have boulder monuments and benches for the inurnment of cremated remains.
