In 1831 Mount Auburn defined what a Cemetery should be. After nearly 200 years, we remain focused on advancing our mission to offer burial and commemorative services that celebrate human stories within a landscape of exceptional beauty. We invite you and your family to be part of Mount Auburn today, tomorrow, and forever.

Burial Space

Mount Auburn offers a variety of conventional casket, natural burial, and cremation graves. These carefully selected locations are designed to be lasting, perpetual places for families and friends to celebrate the lives of those they come to visit in a serene and beautiful landscape. Options for commemoration without burial are also available.
