The Beginning

Cypress Hills Cemetery was founded on November 21, 1848. It is chartered by New York State as a non-profit, non-sectarian, membership corporation. Under construction for near three years, it officially opened in 1851.

Today & Tomorrow

Today, despite the constantly increasing population and a demand for interment space from families throughout the New York City metropolitan area, Cypress Hills Cemetery has a large amount of beautifully developed land sufficient to serve future generations.

Location, Location

The cemetery is located in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn, and encompasses 225 acres and is easily reached via the J line at the Cypress Hills station, approximately 45 minutes from Manhattan.
