Holyhood and St. Joseph Cemeteries, long regarded as two of the most attractive cemeteries in New
England, have a rich heritage going back over 150 years. Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood in the
Chestnut Hill area of Brookline, Holyhood is a picturesque Victorian cemetery of narrow, winding
paths, often ornate grave markers, graceful old trees, and flowering shrubbery. St. Joseph, located
in nearby West Roxbury on about 200 acres, is also a beautiful cemetery with rolling terrain, well
maintained grounds, and an historic chapel as its dominant feature.
Along with careful restorations of fine old structures and professional attention to financial and physical integrity, Holyhood Cemetery Association has a deep commitment to extending respectful care and compassion.
