"From the depths of our guilt, we cry out in hope to the Lord, the promised Sun of Justice.  In His rising from the tomb dawns the day of our salvation".

Psalm 130

Thank you for visiting our website.  We hope you find the information you are seeking.  If you are interested in purchasing a grave, crypt or niche, please contact us at (973) 942-3368.  Our staff is available to assist you in making pre-arrangements and can answer any questions you may have.


Introducing a new section for the interment of cremated remains.  

This section is specifically established for the interment of cremations only. This is another option to in-ground burial from purchasing a grave, crypt or niche (also for cremated remains).  In 2016, the Vatican released burial rites involving ashes/cremains of the deceased. If you have your loved one's cremated remains at home we kindly encourage you to bring them to Holy Sepulchre Cemetery where you can secure a dignified, final resting place.  For more information please call us at 973-942-3368.

 


Questions about making pre-arrangements?

The staff at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery is available to assist you with any questions you may have.  Spare your family from having to make these difficult decisions in the future by selecting your final resting place today. Crypts, Niches and Graves are available for purchase today. Call 973-942-3368 to make a no -obligation appointment.


Mausoleum Construction Updates

August 4, 2017 - Our general contractor has advised all inspections have been performed and all inspections have passed.  At this time, we await the Borough of Totowa's engineer to sign off on the project and the issuance of the Certificate of Occupancy.  We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.  We too look forward to completion of this project.

As the mausoleum has undergone extensive construction to expand and renovate this beautiful final resting place for our loved ones, we remind you that food and pets are strictly prohibited.  When installing artificial floral arrangements, reachers are available throughout the building to assist you. Please do not stand on the benches. They are not intended for standing on. If you cannot install your floral arrangement, please bring them to the office and the cemetery staff will install them for you.  Thank you.

For updates click on the MAUSOLEUM link above and select from the drop down menu.  Here you'll be able to see pictures of the progress made to date.


Deer On Property

Resident deer living on the property have been seen feeding on freshly planted flowers throughout the cemetery.  If you find that the flowers you have recently planted at your loved one's gravesite have been disturbed it may be the deer and not a thief or vandal.  Deer-resistant plants and flowers are highly recommended. Your local garden center can help make suggestions and recommendations.

As we realize the wildlife can be a nuisance to some, New Jersey State Law prohibits hunting on cemetery property.  Any threats to cause harm or death to the wildlife are taken seriously and reported to local authorities. 


Deer Resistant Plants

Some deer resistant plants include vincas, salvia, liriope, lavender, echinacea (coneflower), daffodils, foxgloves, juniper, pachysandra, black-eyed-susan and many others.  Consult your local garden center for more suggestions and varieties.

 


Flags

On Memorial Day we remember all who have gone to be with the Lord while serving in our country's armed forces. Flags may be placed at the gravesites of veterans throughout the cemetery.  A friendly reminder, flags are permitted from Memorial Day until Independence Day.  We thank you in advance for honoring the veterans and observing cemetery rules.
