Final Arrangements

An active cemetery with more than 300 interments a year, Newton Cemetery helps families plan final arrangements for their loved ones every day. Our knowledgeable staff is available to assist with your pre-arrangements or immediate need.


Immediate Need

To make immediate funeral arrangements for a loved one, contact the Newton Cemetery office at 617-332-0047. Our caring staff will guide you through the process, whether you need to purchase a cemetery space, plan a cremation, or need answers about monuments or lot care. We will work with your funeral home to coordinate the details of the service. If you do not have a funeral home, please refer to the list of Newton and Boston area funeral homes in our resource section.


Advance Planning

More people are electing to make final arrangements on a pre-need basis. It gives you time to carefully consider the many options and plan the details of your service. You will have peace of mind knowing your wishes will be observed, giving your family and friends the time to focus on supporting each other through the grieving process.

All spaces in Newton Cemetery are available for pre-purchase. Our staff will be pleased to meet you, give you a tour of our facilities and explain all you need to know about purchasing your cemetery space, taking the mystery out of planning your service. Please call the office at 617-332-0047 to schedule an appointment.

In conjunction with purchasing a cemetery space, we recommended you contact a funeral home or attorney (or both) to plan all the details of your pre-need funeral arrangements.
