Join us for an informative discussion about the cremation process. Joseph Bancewicz, Crematory Manager, and Steve Brown, Director of Cemetery Services, will answer all of your cremation-related questions: Can I witness the cremation? Is a casket required? Can anyone be cremated at Mount Auburn? What do I do with the cremated remains? Find out the answers to these and other commonly asked questions followed by a tour of our new, state-of-the-art crematory. Bring your lunch for this hour-long presentation in Bigelow Chapel, coffee and tea provided.

Experience a deeper connection to Mount Auburn Cemetery with free access to all our public programs and discounts on special events by joining the Friends of Mount Auburn. Our robust roster of programs each year is made possible through your generous support.

Funding for programs has been provided in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
