Winter Vault Usage:
*This fee is waived for any Remains destined for Riverside Cemetery
Please read the Association By Laws for Rules and Regulations on purchasing and rights of ownership.
Note: To keep our cemetery fiscally viable, these fees may be increased
Due to huge costs such as Workmans Comp which is mandated by NYS along with other maintenance costs it is very difficult to keep a cemetery "in the black".
The cemetery costs and future are also maintained by Interest on our Accounts and our above Sales and Fees.
And we all know that not much Interest accumulates in these times.
Our other Income Stream depends on Donations. Please consider our cemetery when you are feeling
generous. Donations are typically placed in our Beautification Fund unless otherwise
Should a Charitable Cemetery, such as ours, fail, it is turned over to the local Municipality. We have seen what can happen when this occurs.
