Just as times have changed, so have ideas about burial options, acceptable ways
to honor those we love, and the importance of cemeteries in our towns and cities.
A cemetery such as Allegheny, with its emphasis on land and historic preservation,
takes on new importance as once abundant greenspace gives way to strip malls and
Pittsburgh is a diverse city, one with a variety of languages, cultures, religions,
and traditions. The management of Allegheny Cemetery is committed to offering
the people of Pittsburgh a wide choice of burial and memorialization options.
The Staff of Allegheny Cemetery is ready to assist you with the many decisions
surrounding the loss of a loved one. We believe that everyone touches someone
in a special way that will be remembered, and this memory should be recognized
as a symbol of erverlasting significance. Memorials are your personal expression
so please alllow us to help you with this important decision.
Garden of the Four Seasons
Capturing both the spirit and beauty of the changing seasons, the obelisk contains
niches for cremated remains and is surrounded by 2,500 burial spaces. Single,
double, and family lots are available in this most-recently developed section.
Garden of Peace
The bronze Christus accents this section, standing over 17 feet above the pedestal.
The Garden of Peace includes 5,000 burial places for both traditional burial
and cremated remains. Space is limited in this desirable section.
If you prefer an upright memorial, Allegheny Cemetery has several areas throughout
the property where upright memorials are permitted. There are also special areas
designated for veterans.
