Thank You Families, Friends & Visitors

To our Swan Point Community… We would like to extend our sincere appreciation for your patience on the changes we have had to implement in our operations and access to the grounds during this unsettling time. Most importantly, for those we serve, thank you for understanding when we have had to adjust the way we assist you whether it is limiting attendees to the services of your loved ones, or postponing the various arrangements made here at the cemetery.

Thank you to the families and friends whose loved ones are memorialized here, for bearing with us and the increase in visitors, some new to the cemetery, who have tried to find a place of refuge by walking here and viewing the magnificent elements of Swan Point. Thank you to our visitors for your respectful approach to this special place. If it was your first time here we welcome you.

For close to 175 years, Swan Point Cemetery has served our entire community providing a peaceful place for memorialization of those who have gone before us and those who remain. A peaceful place where the horticulture and wildlife continues to thrive and grow, sharing with us the amazing path of nature. As we all eagerly await the return to more peaceful and healthy times, we remain committed to serving our entire community and caring for the treasure that Swan Point Cemetery has come to be for all of us.

A sanctuary of peace and beauty …

Established in 1846, Swan Point Cemetery is a meticulously maintained, 200-acre garden cemetery located in Providence, Rhode Island. Our beautiful grounds and buildings offer a peaceful place for visitors to seek inspiration, quietly reflect, or commune with nature. Listed on the National Register of Historic Sites, Swan Point is an actively managed, full service cemetery open to people of every faith and heritage. Whether in the preplanning stage or when there is an immediate need for our assistance, our compassionate counselors take special care to be certain that each families’ needs, desires, and religious traditions are met. We encourage you to discover our rich history and spend some time visiting the beautiful grounds of Swan Point Cemetery.


Redwood Mausoleum, Columbarium and Chapel

Located in the southwest section of the cemetery, this building is designed in a variation of English Country Gothic and Arts and Crafts Movement styles to blend harmoniously with the earlier cemetery buildings.



Swan Point Cemetery provides a beautifully planted and maintained, garden-like setting for the memorialization of loved ones. All landscaping development is carefully planned to blend harmoniously with the natural contours of the grounds.


Reception Facilities

Our two beautifully-appointed Reception Rooms are available for hosting collations or bereavement luncheons following interment or cremation services at Swan Point. An adjoining patio area and courtyard are also available for use during pleasant weather.




Statistics show that two out of three final internment arrangements are made by widows. One of life’s most difficult decisions need not be made at the time of bereavement. Families are encouraged to discuss burial plans pre-need so that personalized, unhurried decisions can be made.
