All services and products at our cemetery have set pricing which is contained in an official Cemetery Price List which is filed with the New Jersey Cemetery Board (part of the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General, Division of Consumer Affairs). The Cemetery Price List is available for review at the property upon request. The complete Cemetery Price List is too cumbersome to place on a website. Pricing is as unique as the individual due to special locations, requests and preferences. Our cemetery will gladly share all of our pricing information. All you have to do is contact Princeton Abbey and Cemetery for complete details and helpful information.
