A Brief History
In 1927, the we constructed our first mausoleum, Ferncliff Mausoleum (also known as the Cathedral of Memories). This mausoleum has been expanded over the years as space needs increased. In 1933, we began to operate a crematory within the premise of the Ferncliff Mausoleum. For the past 80 years, Ferncliff has provided quality cremation services. We currently perform approximately 10% of all cremations in New York State.
Shrine of Memories
We constructed our second large community mausoleum, the Shrine of Memories, beginning in 1959. Gracefully designed of sand-colored limestone, it offers a more economical alternative for community interments.
Our third community mausoleum, the Rosewood Mausoleum, was constructed in 1998. Designed to combine the best features of the Shrine of Memories and the Ferncliff Mausoleum, Rosewood provides comfort and quiet inspiration to families today and for generations to come.
