Ascension Cemetery is divided into 5 developed sections for ground burial. A community chapel mausoleum with both crypts and niches, and the cemetery office were constructed in 1990.
Notable cemetery features include the entrance carving of Jesus ascending into heaven, a large natural pond over which one must cross to approach the mausoleum complex, and the cemetery office. There are also various shrines throughout the cemetery sections.
Mausoleum crypt options include Single (garden/exterior) crypts, double (garden/exterior) crypts, and triple (garden/exterior) crypt space availability.
Section 6 is a Family Plot Section that has 3 to 4 grave spaces per family plot (double depth per grave), please inquire for further information. Burial Rights for Double Depth graves are now available.

At the initiative of Cardinal Timothy Dolan, beautifully landscaped graves at the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary section of Ascension Cemetery are offered to people of limited means, as attested to by their pastor. Each grave accommodates the caskets of three loved ones and the cost includes a granite upright monument inscribed with the names of the deceased.
