Catholic cemeteries are to be blessed, designating them sacred ground. In keeping with the church's "desires that every Catholic be buried in blessed ground," non-Catholic cemeteries, where possible, should allow a separate Catholic section and that should be blessed. If there cannot be a Catholic section, an individual grave must be blessed before the body of the deceased is lowered into it.

I was wondering how I can get pictures of a family buried in the Cemetery of Holy Rood. I live in CT so it is a distance away from me.

The family name is Della Vecchio. They are buried in Section 5, Range X, Plot 34. I am looking for Mariano, Carmela, Jennie, Albert, and Carmine's head stones. Their last name can also be spelled as: Della Vecchia, Dellavecchia, Delvecchia.

Thankyou very much for such a quick response. I thought for sure my cousins (All deceased) had purchased a headstone for my aunt and uncle.

WOW! Thank you so much.

The internet continues to amaze me. This morning I heard of Find a Grave for the first time ever. I send a request for a photo of my grandparents headstone, which I have never seen. Voila! Hours later, after waiting more than 30 years to see it, here is a photo thanks to you!

I am so grateful! You are the best. My grandparents lived in Old Westbury, @ "6 The Pines" (I think that is the house number). Do you live nearby there and the cemetery?

God Bless you!

Shared memorial
Hi Peter,
Thank you for the picture of the memorial at the "shared section". Is this the section for stillborns? I assume that there are no headstones there. Thank you again, Stephanie McKenney.

Thank you for taking the photograph of the grave for Catherine Mann. I had thought there was a flat stone but even so, I am happy to have the photograph of her final resting place.
