About Mount Prospect Cemetery
A Sacred Place
"Caring for Families...Eternally"
Our Mission Statement
We are in business to serve families—one at a time in the communities around our cemeteries—by educating and guiding each person with the importance of preplanning.
With caring and compassion, we will guide them toward realistic burial, mausoleum, cremation and memorial options.
To that end, we will make certain we are providing what they need and can afford. Only then are we truly serving.
“By Serving, We Will Be Served”
Mount Prospect Cemetery is a beautiful cemetery that sits on a hill just off Heck Avenue in Neptune, New Jersey in Monmouth County. It was founded in 1881 by Willisford Dey. Buried in the 35 acre cemetery are Sand Hill tribe members, was veterans, Morro Castle victims and the founding mothers and fathers of Neptune. The cemetery is best known for the seventy-five foot monument that rises from it's peak. The monument was erected by Henry M. Bennett in 1897 to his wife, Frances. He owned the Bijou theater chain.
Over the next two years President Louis Cicalese will be directing many improvements and creating new burial sections.
