Remembrance, honor and compassion create the framework for New Jersey's tranquil Rosedale Cemetery. For over 105 years, Rosedale Cemetery has served families in their greatest time of need. Through professional and caring service, Rosedale has dedicated itself to helping families through the difficult time when a loved one is lost, helping create special memorials to commemorate and honor those who have passed.
Paying respect to different religious beliefs is also important at Rosedale. Christian to Islamic faiths are celebrated on the grounds of Rosedale, along with many other religions. Like religious beliefs, Rosedale knows and understands that each person in repose upon its grounds was unique in their own special way. And that uniqueness is celebrated through an array of memorial options available for families to choose from.
Rosedale is ideally located in the city of Linden, in Union County, New Jersey. Although Rosedale is tucked away in a quiet place where seclusion and peace prevail, only thirteen miles away is Manhattan in the nation's largest city, New York. Linden also borders the beautiful Staten Island, another borough of New York City.
While Linden is located next to one of the most famous cities in the world, the area itself is filled with history that dates back centuries. In 1609, Linden was first visited by European explorers who described the area as being ?pleasant, with grass and flowers and goodly trees.? Over the years, Linden has been occupied by many different types of people, from Native Americans to some of the nation's first settlers. Yet, it has always retained the lovely, natural surroundings which first appealed to the European explorers.
Beautiful lawns, large shade trees and flowering shrubs continue to thrive and grow throughout the grounds of Rosedale Cemetery. The breathtaking lawns, replete with lovely statues and fountains, give family and friends a special place to visit to remember their loved ones. The nature-filled surroundings were created and are maintained to assist visitors in finding solitude and calm amidst the backdrop of a local urban setting.
