Holy Cross Cemetery, Colma Reviews - Write a Review

  • Holy Cross is our family cemetery. My father, mother and younger brother Peter are all buried there. It is a serene and heavenly place.

  • Great resting place. Very peaceful and well kept. The staff were very helpful in planning my mother's burial. Amazing place to spend eternity.

  • A lot of my loved ones are buried here. The lawn and roadways are well kept by the grounds keepers. Most of the plots have a nice view, it's nice to sit peacefully with loved ones in this beautiful place.

  • The office is closed in Sundays but the cemetery is open for people to visit family members. The people who work there from the office personnel to the grounds crew are very kind, helpful and respectful of their role in the lives of our loved ones.

  • Being a lifelong Yankee fan, it was really interesting to see this place come up as a stop on places to visit. My aunt is buried here so I kind of stumbled upon the place where the great Joe DiMaggio is laid to rest. Was really neat place to visit. Kind of odd but great place to pay your respects and nice little trip outside of the city. Especially if you are a Yankee fan.
