Burial Space

We are committed to providing elegant, tranquil, and environmentally-sensitive interment space now and well into the future. Current burial sites include features like reflection pools, woodland gardens, and scenic overlooks and accommodate a wide range of memorial styles. Mount Auburn offers burial space for both caskets and cremated remains and offers options for natural burials. Learn More »

Cremation

In 1897 Mount Auburn began the first crematory in New England to be operated by a cemetery. The first cremation took place on April 18, 1900. In the succeeding years, over 60,000 cremations have been performed. The Crematory, now located adjacent to Bigelow Chapel, has been periodically improved as technology has advanced. It is connected to the historic Chapel that is frequently used for funeral and memorial services.  We now perform over 1,200 cremations annually. Each one is carried out with dignity and care. The remains can be interred here at the Cemetery or elsewhere.

Currently our Crematory is closed while Bigelow Chapel undergoes construction work which includes building a modern state-of-the-art crematory facility.  Read more >> Learn More »

Commemorate a Life

With its harmonious combination of natural beauty and thoughtfully designed built structures, Mount Auburn Cemetery is ideal for reflection and remembrance.

Ongoing Care and Maintenance

We understand that grieving does not end on the day of interment. An interment site is a kind of sanctuary, a place for friends and family to mourn, remember and celebrate a loved one. We work together with you to ensure that the site continues to be beautifully maintained now and into the future. Learn More »

This service is available year round, and offers themed arrangements for Easter, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Father’s Day, and the winter holidays.
