About Riverside Cemetery Association

At our cemetery, we understand the importance of family. We believe in treating your family as we would our own. We stand behind our reputation and will continue to serve our community with the values instilled by our staff.

We are members of the New England Cemetery Association and International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association and the Norwalk Chamber of Commerce.

The Riverside Cemetery Association was founded in November of 1886 by a foresighted group of men headed by John H. Light. It was their ideal that this cemetery should be non-sectarian in character-a place in which all who desire would find a place for reverent burial and for memorializing loved ones. The original purchase was for 40 acres of farmland, in the Broad River section in the outskirts of Norwalk. This land had been owned by Minot C. Kellogg, who participated in the organization. The first burial was recorded in December of 1886. An additional 19 acres was bought to assure quiet surroundings and boundaries free of buildings. The Cemetery is classified as an ancient burial ground as it has existed as such for well over 100 years. There are over 23,000 interments and thousands of plots available. Today, members of the same founding family continue to direct it's affairs.

It's Gate Lodge was built at the Cemetery entrance in 1899 and serves as a Chapel/Gathering Room and administrative office. The Riverside Cemetery Association is a corporation and is governed by its Board of Directors and its shareholders. It is dedicated to the past for the benefit of the present and the future for many, many years to come.
