- About Us
During the Revolutionary War, the Battle of Connecticut Farms was fought on the grounds of what is now Hollywood Memorial Park and Cemetery. Founded in 1909, Hollywood Cemetery was originally known as the Union Cemetery Association. In 1938, Hollywood Memorial Park and Cemetery was created, comprising 70 acres across the road. The two properties merged in 1991 to become Hollywood Memorial Park and Cemetery.
The first memorial park in New Jersey to significantly commit to the mausoleum concept in 1965, Hollywood Memorial Park and Cemetery has eleven mausoleums with approximately 30,000 mausoleum crypts. The Chapel mausoleums are fully carpeted and climate controlled, and offer comfortable, dignified settings in which families can quietly meditate or pray while being protected from the weather year-round.
