Park View Cemetery History

Established in 1901, Park View Cemetery was designed to provide tranquility and beauty immediately upon entering through its graceful entrance. Carefully well planned to provide a meticulous design accommodating pleasing avenues of approach, no crowding and long term growth, Park View has become the cemetery of choice in the Capital District. Its tradition of providing for meticulous permanent maintenance, funded by its Trustee managed Permanent Maintenance Fund, assures plot owners peace of mind. Dedicated to Park View’s original mission to offer a final resting place of "soothing tranquility and restful beauty" you will experience a dedicated staff committed to ultimate service and attention to details.

In 2000 Park View Cemetery expanded its services to include a state-of-the art crematorium. Once again, in the tradition of quality service, the Park View Crematory provides reputable and consistent impeccable cremation services. The New York Department of State, Division of Cemeteries repeatedly cites Park View’s Crematory as a exceptional model for excellence for all crematories to emulate. All crematory staff have Certificates of Completion as Certified Crematory Operators and participate in continuing education programs.
