A Message from Our Superintendent

Thank you for taking the time to consider what Ferncliff Cemetery and Arboretum can offer you if you choose cremation. Our reputation is well-known as a place where your satisfaction with the arrangements is our top priority. Our compassionate staff is always here to assist you every step of the way. If you would prefer an on-site service, our lovely chapel can accommodate up to fifty family members and friends.

Ferncliff Cemetery and Arboretum was officially dedicated on July 4, 1863. Since 2012 and the installation of our own crematory on the premises, we can now offer the alternative of cremation, with the same care and consideration we have provided to grieving families who choose traditional burial.

We invite you to visit our grounds and feel the peaceful surroundings. Many have commented on the feeling of contentment they experience just by being here.

We welcome any questions you may have about any aspect of the arrangements or the cremation process itself.
