Traditional Ground Burial & Lawn Crypt Entombment
The Poughkeepsie Rural Cemetery has a long history of exemplary care to those families who have lost loved ones or wish to plan ahead for their own memorialization. There are many choices for burial and commemoration at this unique and historic place.
Traditional Ground Burial
For those who prefer ground burial, we have a large selection of choice locations available throughout the cemetery grounds. From the single grave to the largest family plot, the Poughkeepsie Rural Cemetery can accommodate your wishes.
Due to the increasing popularity of cremations, and because of the ease of costs compared to traditional burial, we offer Cremation Graves located throughout the Cemetery at an affordable price. Cremation Graves can accommodate up to two cremated remains and can be memorialized with a flush bronze memorial for an additional charge.
Lawn Crypt Garden
Our Lawn Crypt Garden overlooking the scenic Hudson River, offers the appeal of mausoleum entombment, the beauty of a garden and ease of access-all at an affordable price.
Financial consideration is often the deciding factor in burial decisions. The Lawn Crypt Garden option includes the cost of a lot, crypt and memorial all in one price.
Each single and double lawn crypt includes a 16” x 24” bronze memorial with or without a flower vase, installed at ground level.
