An historic garden cemetery with religious traditions 

Located in a peaceful suburban setting, St. Matthew’s is a non-denominational cemetery known for its beautifully maintained landscaped gardens. The cemetery’s park-like setting – nestled alongside the flowing waters of Cayuga Creek – has provided a unique sense of quiet and tranquility for more than six generations. While we have our roots as a church cemetery (and still offer sections named for popular saints and apostles), we are a non-denominational cemetery that welcomes people of all faiths. Today, you will find many traditional and cremation in-ground and above-ground burial options to suit your needs available throughout St. Matthew’s, including our garden sections, our Field of Valor® for veterans, our Chapel Walk Columbarium and our newly opened Faith Mausoleum and Resurrection Chapel.

Attention Garden of Good Shepherd Families

If you have a loved one who was buried in the Garden of Good Shepherd here in St. Matthew's Cemetery, as you likely now know, due to the  collapse of the land in this section in 2019, and its continued instability, all burials in the Garden of Good Shepherd have been moved out of harm's way to a safe, stable section of the cemetery in St. James East.   If you need assistance in locating the grave of your loved one in St. James East, click on the link below for a list of the specific burial locations (in alphabetical order) for all those moved from the Garden of Good Shepherd to St. James East: Garden of Good Shepherd Burials
