Making History Again: Sunnyside is Expanding!
Beautiful, historic Sunnyside Cemetery is making history again with our new expansion. We are adding in-ground, above-ground, family estates, and cremation options to this famed St. Petersburg landmark.
Lovely Options for Burial and Cremation
For years, there were few burial or inurnment opportunities at Sunnyside, one of St. Petersburg’s oldest and most beautiful cemeteries. The wait is over. We are adding new burial and cremation spaces, including the following:
- Upright and flat monument ground burial spaces
- Multiple community columbariums
- Custom family estates
Our expansion plan respects Sunnyside’s historic and quaint beauty, offering families various styles, sizes, and customization options. We expect to complete the expansion by the end of 2023, making NOW the best time to reserve your space at special pre-construction prices.
Now is the time to plan for the future. Sunnyside Cemetery is offering special pricing for a limited time only. Call today to learn about the options available and schedule a private tour.
Premier spaces won’t last. Call today for more information and a private tour.
About Sunnyside Cemetery
The third-oldest cemetery in St. Petersburg, Sunnyside Cemetery features lushly landscaped gardens, towering oaks draped in Spanish moss, and serene wooded glens. The cemetery is steeped in local history as the preferred resting place for generations of families. The Pinellas Genealogy Society maintains a list of gravesites. Among those listed is Walter John Hoxie, who wrote the original 1913 edition of the Girl Scouts Handbook.
Established in 1895, Sunnyside Cemetery was first known as the Ellis Graveyard. The cemetery was reserved only for family members of founder Nathaniel Ellis. In 1904, the cemetery’s new owner formed the Sunnyside Cemetery Association. By the following year, Sunnyside Cemetery opened to the public.
Sunnyside Cemetery is located at 5300 19th Street North, in St. Petersburg. The cemetery is open from dawn to dusk.
