Opened in 1939, Holy Cross Polish National Catholic Cemetery is located on the east side of Old Commack Road in Commack, NY 11725. It stands on what was originally a 60 acre parcel, 45 acres of which were subsequently sold off, leaving 15 acres (6 in plots with 9 in reserve for future interments). The cemetery's chapel was completed in 1954.
It is owned and operated by Holy Cross Polish National Catholic Church, 159 15th Street, Brooklyn, New York 11215.
Many of those buried there were leaders in Brooklyn's Polish-American community and in the Polish National Alliance of Brooklyn.
The overwhelming majority, if not all, of the gravestones were made by Remis Monument Co., 69-31 Metropolitan Avenue, Middle Village (Queens County), New York 11379, and many of them are in Polish.
