Historic Doylestown Cemetery was founded in1849 as a Victorian garden cemetery by a group of compassionate citizens who purchased a 10 acre tract specifically for the purpose of starting a non-profit, non-demominational cemetery where all people are warmly recieved. It has become one of the most beautiful and welcoming cemeteries in Bucks County.Families can find quiet comfort laying their loved ones to rest surrounded by the tranquility of a beautifully maintained arboraetum, or stroll the secure 33 landscaped acres in calming solitude .
We offer several choices and locations for both traditional burials and cremation lots. Our newly installed Memorial Garden for the 'green' interment of cremated remains, is now open. These beautifully landscaped gardens provide an unmarked site for those wishing to return to the natural earth leaving no carbon footpront behind. Lovely antiqued benches and contemplative sculpture provide a peaceful location for prayer and meditation. Rest in nature's arms.
History is alive! at Doylestown Cemetery! With nearly 11,000 interments within the past 160+ years, this historic cemetery is the final resting place of some of Doylestown's and Bucks County's most interesting and important citizens.
