Funerals & Memorial Garden

Contact the Parish Office at 973-835-2207 to make arrangements for a funeral.

Christ Church Memorial Garden is a place for interring the cremated ashes of the members and friends of Christ Church. The Memorial Garden is not a columbarium; there will be no niches and no non-disintegrating receptacles for ashes. A memorial plaque, appropriately inscribed with the name of the deceased and year of birth and death, will be ordered by Christ Church and mounted in a suitable place. Upon interment in the Memorial Garden, a Certificate of Cremation will be provided by the family and kept on file in Christ Church. A minimum donation of $450.00 is requested for the interment of ashes; however, it is not the intention of Christ Church ever to deny a person a Christian burial. The donation may be made in advance or at the time of interment.
