Maple Hill Cemetery is beautiful, respectful, and professionally run. Many funerals for family and friends have taken place at Maple Hill and we have never had a problem.

Wanted to visit my family's graves. Came from Buffalo. Cemetery is alot bigger than the last time I was here 20 years ago. Cemetery is kept up nicely.
