New York cemeteries are regulated by the state Cemetery board. The Pine Hill Cemetery is governed by a Board of Trustees elected by the members of the Cemetery Association at its annual meeting.


Your pre-need planning and purchase of a burial space is important. By pre-purchasing, you are assured your desires will be fulfilled as you planned.



 In keeping with the beautiful design of the original cemetery, in 2006 the Board of Trustees opened a new professionally-designed and landscaped section to accommodate the demand for burial sites in the area. The new section includes a "Cremation Garden" to meet the increasing wishes of many families. 

Pine Hill Cemetery Association was created in 1867 "To procure and hold lands to be used exclusively for a cemetery or place for burial of the dead". The association is governed by a voluntary Board of Trustees.

The U.S. Treasury Department/Internal Revenue Service in 1960 recognized the cemetery as a 501 (C) (13) tax exempt charitable. (Public charity)
