#3.) Brief Historical
At historic Grove Cemetery we celebrate lives. Continuing a 144 year
tradition, we serve the community with dignified interments and
assist in the customization of bronze memorials that are a tribute
to your loved ones and what brought them joy in their lives.
Historical Highlights The first meeting to establish a cemetery in
New Brighton was held on July 12, 1858. A charter was drawn up under
the name "Grove Cemetery" and the cemetery was incorporated on March
It was a warm October 13th in 1859 when 250 people attended the
dedication of Grove Cemetery. After the formal proceedings, guests
had the opportunity to purchase interment spaces for themselves and
their loved ones. Forty lots were sold.
In April 1862, a committee was appointed to raise funds for a
monument to the memory of Beaver County soldiers who gave their
lives in the Civil War. The committee was discharged in 1874 because
not enough funds could be raised. The monument plans were rekindled
in 1883. Today the Civil War monument stands proudly, flanked by
four canons, honoring the lives of the soldiers who were buried near
the battlefields where they met their deaths.
To us, all of Grove Cemetery is hallowed ground and prices for
interment spaces are the same in all locations. Our prices also
remain the same - whether you purchase an interment space needed for
a loved one now or want to have peace of mind knowing that you have
selected the space of your choice for the future.
At Grove Cemetery, We Celebrate Lives. 15,516 persons are interred
in this peaceful final resting place. Are you a descendant of one or
several of them? Please contact us and we will enter your name,
