Now open... A place of timeless beauty.

Space in Williamsville’s Gethsemane Cemetery now available to all.

Nestled in the heart of the Village of Williamsville, on a plateau overlooking the meadows and forests of the Amherst State Park and bounded by the waters of Ellicott Creek lies a “hidden gem” - Gethsemane Cemetery.   Since its dedication in the early 1900’s, this beautiful, quiet, serene place has been a private cemetery, exclusively for burial of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities.   Recently, the Sisters entrusted ownership of Gethsemane to the Forest Lawn Cemetery and Crematory Group. 


Now we are very pleased to make burial in this picturesque, historic cemetery in the charming and unique Reist Street neighborhood available to people of all faiths in the Town of Amherst.  In this place of timeless beauty you’ll find very affordable options for casketed or cremation burial.  

Call (716) 332-2236 to learn more.
