Please be aware that this is not a good time to direct inquiries or requests to New York metropolitan area cemeteries, which are currently dealing with burials of Covid victims. Some have shortened their hours or close after the last scheduled burial of the day. 
 
Also, all cemetery offices are closed to visitors; only funeral directors are admitted. So should you plan to visit a cemetery, be sure to have grave locations and print out a map before leaving home. 
 
A good source for maps is Steve Lasky's website:

Grave locations are available on the websites of a number of NY area cemeteries: Beth Moses, Montefiore, Mount Ararat, Mount Carmel, Mount Hebron, Mount Judah, Mount Lebanon, Mount Zion, New Montefiore, Wellwood.
