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 peace and tranquility of a beautifully maintained arboraetum, or stroll the secure 33 landscaped acres in calming solitude .
We offer traditional full-sized graves for casket burials, two smaller grave sizes for the interment of cremated remains, and combination graves for the interment of full casket burial with the option of adding cremated remains in the same grave.
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. Weekly guided walking tours lead guests on entertaining and informative excursions into the past. See Walking Tours link for details.
