Rochester Cemetery

Nature's beauty since 1850


Rochester Cemetery is the oldest, historic cemetery in Shawnee County, Kansas.  The atmosphere is indicative of its long history due to the shade of the big, old trees along the drives.

Blooming shrubs and plants throughout the cemetery bring beautiful color around Memorial Day.  The entire site provides a picturesque setting for a final resting place.  The excellent care given to the cemetery is evident to visitors.

The cemetery is operated under the laws of the State of Kansas.  The administration of the cemetery is governed by a board of directors.

Unique features of the cemetery are perpetual care which is included in the affordable price of property, upright headstones are welcomed.  Our pet cemetery is a peaceful, final resting place for your beloved pet.  We have ample acreage available for future expansion.

Established in 1850
