2019: Queens Voted St. John Cemetery Best Cemetery!

St. John Cemetery

80-01 Metropolitan Ave, Middle Village
(718) 894-4888

St. John Cemetery encompasses nearly 190 acres in Middle Village. While it was not the first cemetery established for Catholic families of the Brooklyn Diocese, St. John Cemetery is one of the largest, and serves as the main office for the Diocese’s Catholic Cemeteries. The cemetery was consecrated on November 27, 1881, and as time progressed, it began to serve the needs of more parishioners of Brooklyn as well as Queens. In 1947, the last parcel was procured and developed, bringing St. John Cemetery to the 190 acres that are currently maintained and cared for.
