Riverside Cemetery

A Natural Place of Lasting Peace 

Why Choose Riverside Cemetery for Your Interment Needs? 

Riverside Cemetery, situated on 123 acres of land that borders the west bank of the Genesee River, provides for a lovely natural and dignified memorial setting in which to honor loved ones who have been laid to rest.

At Riverside we are committed to providing customers with innovative interment options. The cemetery offers traditional in-ground burial, above-ground interment in one of our community mausoleums or columbaria, and a designated garden for the scattering of cremated remains.

The cemetery grounds are an ever-expanding landscape, offering burial space for both full body and cremated remains. The cemetery has a designated veterans section which honors those who have served our country.  Private family estates for burial lots, private mausoleums, columbaria and crypts are also available.
