Grove Place Cemetery Association
was founded by a group of local citizens in 1856 with a vision for the future. They desired to have a local cemetery for the burial of their loved ones in their day, as well as many years in the future. The Association was incorporated as a non-profit corporation under the laws of New York State in the year it was founded. The cemetery is non-denominational, and continues to carry on the commitment made by the founders.
Grove Place and Westside Cemeteries are operated by the Association, which is governed by a Board of Trustees, and in conformity with the Rules and Regulations of the State of New York, Department of State, Division of Cemeteries.
Grove Place Cemetery is truly a bearer of history. There are several generations of many families which have chosen Grove Place as their final resting place; a living commentary on the care and constant maintenance of the cemetery.
Permanent Maintenance Coverage
When a lot is purchased in either cemetery, Permanent Maintenance coverage is included at a nominal fee which equates to approximately two dollars over 30 years. It provides for the perpetual care and maintenance of the cemetery long after the cemetery has reached capacity. While the Association remains the custodian of these funds, New York State Auditors visit regularly to assure that these funds are invested and maintained properly, in accordance with the regulations of the State of New York, Department of State, Division of Cemteries.
Grove Place and Westside Cemeteries have computerized mapping to assist in the location of graves. Our sales staff will be pleased to provide you with detailed instructions in helping you find the grave of a loved one.
