Baltimore Hebrew Congregation has a historic cemetery in Baltimore City and a premier cemetery located in Reisterstown (Baltimore County). Cemetery plots are available for sale to members of Baltimore Hebrew Congregation and to the community. Options are available in both our bronze marker/footstone sections and our monument/headstone sections. The purchase of cemetery lots includes Perpetual Care which ensures the ongoing maintenance of our cemeteries. For cemetery rules, click here.
Berrymans Lane Cemetery is located in the rolling hills of rural Reisterstown, MD. It is easily accessible by using Reisterstown Road or the I-795 Expressway. At the entrance stands a memorial to the victims of the Holocaust. The cemetery, completed in 1964, incorporates the most modern features of cemetery planning and landscape architecture to ensure enduring beauty throughout the ages.
The cemetery is divided into divisions and sections featuring bronze markers/footstones and monuments/headstones. Both casket and ash burials are permitted in our cemetery, and special arrangements can be made for double ash burials interred on a single lot. Perpetual Care and maintenance are provided for all grave sites by a separate fund.
