This is a brief overview of the options available at the Catholic Cemeteries of Long Island. Our staff is always available to assist you. If you’d like to learn more about your choices, please call the cemetery office for more information.
Only you can decide what is best for your family.
Traditional Burial Options
Available at our four cemeteries in either monument lots or shrine graves. Monument lots (both single grave and larger sized plots) allow one upright monument to be installed on the lot. Shrine sections generally have a central shrine or feature and each grave is memorialized by a lawn-level bronze marker.
Provide burial space for two in a pre-installed, double depth concrete chamber. Lawn crypts allow a family to provide for the majority of their cemetery needs at an affordable package price: burial space and outer container. Lawn crypt lots allow for either an upright monument or lawn-level bronze memorial with vase, depending on burial section. Lawn Crypts are available at Queen of All Saints Cemetery and Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
Entombments in Community Mausoleums
Offer a number of options to meet the preferences and budgets of those families that prefer above ground entombment. The price of a mausoleum crypt can compare favorably with the total cost of ground burial. Cemetery of the Holy Rood, Holy Sepulchre Cemetery and Queen of All Saints Cemetery have community mausoleums, with crypt spaces in both indoor and garden settings.
Family Heritage Lots
Can accommodate either a private family mausoleum or in-ground burial spaces. Custom landscaping and distinctive memorialization is available on these estate lots.
Cremation Urn Columbariums
Are specially designed for families choosing cremation. Our cemeteries offer a variety of cremation niche space for inurnment at our community mausoleums in both indoor and garden settings.
