Welcome to Bayside Cemetery, Potsdam, NY

Here you will find information concerning our history, burial and cremains sites and prices, special events, a searchable database of burials to locate individuals and families, visiting opportunties, images and maps of the cemetery, and more.

Bayside is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year. It has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places for its architectural and historical significance. 

Our 42 acres of developed burial grounds are open to visitors during the day. Since its creation, Bayside has served our region as a parklike setting to commune with Nature and the memories of those who have gone before us. 

We welcome inquiries about the purchase of burial plots from all persons.

We also welcome donations of time and money from the community to help maintain the beautiful grounds.

Pet Burials Permitted

Given the recent change in New York State law, the Board of Trustees in November 2016 approved a policy allowing the burial of pet cremains with human burials. The conditions for the burial are explained in "document" under "heading." 

Front Lodge gets New Roof

Clarkson University, the new tenant of our historic lodge, arranged for a new roof to be installed last week, thus making the building weatherproof and providing breathing space for the next steps: new plumbing, wiring, kitchen... The final result will be a return to the lodge's original glory.
