Holy Cross Cemetery, Columbarium Garden and Mausoleums are owned and operated by Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish.


In the rich tradition of the Catholic Church we welcome you to Holy Cross Cemetery. Our Catholic Cemetery grounds, Mausoleums, and niche garden are nestled in the picturesque Somerset Hills, New Jersey.

We recognize the difficulties many families encounter when deciding on the final resting place for their loved ones. We believe with prayerful consideration you will discover what you are looking for in a Catholic Cemetery at Holy Cross.

“Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me."

John 14:1

Our Services

I heard a voice from heaven say, “Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.  “Yes,” said the Spirit, “Let them find rest from their labors, for their works accompany them.
