Burial Space

Mount Auburn is committed to providing elegant, tranquil, and environmentally-sensitive burial space now and well into the future. Current options include conventional casket graves, natural burial graves, and space for the burial of cremated remains, and accommodate a wide range of memorial styles. With features like reflection pools, woodland gardens, or scenic overlooks, today's offerings reflect the Cemetery's founding principle that nature helps to console the bereaved and inspire the living.  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. Today, the Cemetery performs 1,200 cremations each year.

Mount Auburn has recently completed an ambitious and exciting project to build a new, state-of-the-art Crematory adjacent to Bigelow Chapel.

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 »
