 Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, Rochester NY

 

Holy Sepulchre Cemetery

 

In 1871, the first bishop of the Diocese of Rochester, Bishop Bernard J. McQuaid, consecrated the ground he envisioned would provide Rochester's Catholics with a peaceful, prayerful, and reflective garden-like final resting place. Since its first interment on September 18, 1871, nearly 300,000 faithful have been laid to rest in the cemetery's sprawling 330 acres. Holy Sepulchre Cemetery is the largest Rochester cemetery in terms of area and second largest in terms of interments. The cemetery has been shaped and designed by world renowned architects and horticulturists throughout the 145 years of operation. Our cemetery has three different mausoleums for full body entombment and cremation niches. Holy Sepulchre Cemetery offers many new sections and is prepared to serve the changing needs of the community both today and tomorrow.

Ascension Garden Cemetery

 

Ascension Garden Cemetery

 

To meet the growing needs of the community, Ascension Garden Cemetery opened in the spring of 2010. It is situated just west of Mendon Ponds and is nestled into the rolling hills and trees of the area. Ascension Garden was born out of the tradition and excellence of Holy Sepulchre but forges ahead with new burial traditions such as our green burial sections which include our butterfly garden. Our mausoleum provides the option for full body entombment in crypts or niches for cremation urns. Ascension Garden offers the community a place to continue family traditions or begin new ones.
