Established in 1876, St. Bernard Cemetery is one of the oldest Catholic Cemeteries in Somerset County. Serving the parish community of St. Bernard and the parishes in the surrounding area, the cemetery is located on Route 28 West, just one mile from the Somerville Circle. We have just completed landscaping surrounding the new 800 crypt mausoleum which includes a beautiful new prayer garden with walkways and three meditation areas with granite benches.
Both above ground mausoleum crypts and in ground plots are available and we have a select number of memorial trees, stones, and benches to honor your loved ones throughout the prayer garden area. Please call the Cemetery Office for availability.
Mark T. LaFleur, our Cemetery Director, has been employed with St. Bernard for over 25 years, managing and maintaining the mausoleums and cemetery grounds, as well as caring for our families before and after bereavement. Mark is available to meet with families, Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm to discuss all of the options St. Bernard has to offer, and the importance of choosing a Catholic Cemetery as final resting place for themselves and their loved ones.
Mary Beth Hansen, our Cemetery Secretary, works out of the cemetery house office on Route 28. Her duties include assisting Mark with new and innovative ideas and programs to serve our families and the maintenance and updating of all cemetery records on computer. Mary Beth also handles all billing and administrative tasks.
If you need to discuss Cemetery business or have questions about St. Bernard Cemetery, including inquiries concerning the purchase or the location of grave-sites or mausoleum spaces, please contact Mary Beth at 908-725-5566. She will also handle any billing or deed inquiries you may have. Mary Beth is generally in the Cemetery Office located at 551 Route 28, adjacent to the cemetery, between 9:00 am and 2:00 pm each weekday.
