What is a virtual visit to Wiltwyck Cemetery?
A virtual visit is an online option for you to visit family members resting places utilizing Zoom or FaceTime video conferencing. Call the office to set your appointment at 845-331-0199.
At the time of your appointment, the Superintendent will set a phone on a tripod at the location you would like to visit by video conference. You may visit any part of the cemetery. We are able to offer this service in the Mausoleum, at the Cremation Garden, or at any grave site in the cemetery. Families will be able to see and speak with the superintendent. He will perform all tasks that a family member would when visiting in-person. The monument will be wiped clean, we will trim, prune, and water existing shrubs or flowers, and perform general care of the site. After tidying the site, the superintendent will leave you alone to visit in quiet. You will be able to see and hear the sights and sounds of the cemetery.
Who uses this service?
This service is for anyone who may have difficulty visiting the cemetery in-person due to distance or physical ability. We hope this service allows families to “visit” more often.
