|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Holy Cross Cemetery was dedicated in 1868 with 150 acres of burial lots. An additional area of 43 acres was acquired in 1915, south of Lynn Street, after the sale of 15 acres from the northern section near Eastern Ave.
The cemetery now sits on approximately 180 acres. The earliest death date is 1868 and is still in use today. In 2002 there were over 500,000 headstones.
The Massachusetts Historical Commission refers to this cemetery in MACRIS as MAL.802 Holy Cross Cemetery.
The Holy Cross Cemetery and Mausoleum is a very large cemetery and is impossible to locate a grave without first knowing its approximate location. To find out this information (if it is not already listed on the memorial page) you will have to contact the Catholic Cemetery of the Archdiocese of Boston at the phone number (or website) listed above and request the deceased grave location.
