Our Mission Statement
We are in business to serve families—one at a time in the communities around our cemeteries—by educating and guiding each person with the importance of preplanning.
With caring and compassion, we will guide them toward realistic burial, mausoleum, cremation and memorial options.
To that end, we will make certain we are providing what they need and can afford. Only then are we truly serving.
“By Serving, We Will Be Served”
Harleigh Cemetery was established in 1885 and is the final resting place to hundreds of veterans, including 300 Civil War veterans. The cemetery is also the resting place of acclaimed poet, Walt Whitman. It’s located on over 150 acres of land that features lakes, hills and thousands of beautiful trees. In 2000, Louis Cicalese, owner of Cemetery Development Company, Inc. was appointed to the Board of the Harleigh Cemetery Association, becoming the youngest to hold the position in the cemetery’s 100-year history.
