Much more than a cemetery, Maplewood is a living story in stone, iron, and landscape. Here, loved ones will find a place of prayer, peace and consolation at a site designed to be a fitting tribute to the lasting memory of a life that touched their lives too. Maplewood Cemetery was established in the late 1800's and serves as the final resting place of two NJ Governors, Joel Parker and Joseph D. Bedle. Many Union Army officers, including Edwin Applegate and Peter Vredenburgh, Jr.rest here as well. More recently Stanley Dancer, one of the most famous harness racing trainers and drivers was laid to rest in 2005. The family owned cemetery is proud to offer compassionate and caring services to family members seeking information, services, options, or just visiting.
Maplewood Cemetery and Maplewood Chapel Mausoleum offer a variety of services, free pre-planning, and burial options for Freehold area residents and surrounding communities. A large, lovely mausoleum was built in 2004 with a beautiful indoor chapel. The Monmouth County cemetery grounds extend over 40 acres of tranquility. Colorful flower gardens as well as brilliantly colored deciduous trees offer a sense of serenity, beauty and peace to visitors and loved ones. Together, their lives represent the story of a community.
