St. Stephen Cemetery
St. Stephen is located at 1314 Greenwood Ave, Hamilton, OH 45011.
St. Stephen offers ground burials, cremation burials in traditional graves and a cremation garden area. St Stephen has a mausoleum and columbariums for above ground cremation inurnments.
We are always striving to make St. Stephen a better cemetery:
In 2013, The Knights of Columbus repaired and landscaped the historic grotto.
In 2014, the 40 trees affected by the Emerald Ash Borer were removed.
In 2015, the cemetery purchased cemetery software. The cemetery is still inputting data into the software and hopes to have the whole cemetery computerized for easy access and safe storage of information in the near future. Most sections are computerized and can be viewed at Search Records.
In 2018 the cemetery roads were repaired an paved improving the beauty of the cemetery. Also a new entrance sign was installed. The entrance sign has St. Stephen website listed so that visitors can locate loved ones in the cemetery. (The cemetery is not entirely computerized, so call the office if you don’t find your loved one.)
In 2020 the cemetery completed phase 1 of a multi-phase cremation burial project. It is next to the mausoleum. It will be a beautiful addition to the cemetery. Included is a pergola which is a nice place for gathering for prayer. If you are interested in cremation, please contact the cemetery regarding all that cremation burial in our new columbarium and garden has to offer.
New garbage cans were ordered and are being installed to replace the dented old garbage cans. Garbage cans assist the visitors with grave decoration disposal and keeps debris from blowing in the cemetery, keeping the cemetery an inviting place for visitors.
Four bright, night activated lights were installed on all corners of the mausoleum. This provides added security at the mausoleum, the new cremation project, and surrounding areas. Also, new fencing to replace the old chain link fence on the west side of the cemetery was installed. More bushes and plants were planted.
St. Mary/St. Stephen Cemeteries have been servicing the Catholic community of the greater Hamilton area for more than 150 years.
The two cemeteries are cornerstones of our community, representing both local history and the legacies of the families memorialized. Our cemeteries offer traditional ground burials, cremation columbarium niches and cremation ground burials.
Both cemeteries still have space available and offer many burial options for future generations.
