There is no reason why a cemetery would have the name of a congregation.

However, the landsmanshaftn can be a source of further research.  You can check for NYC landsmanshaftn incorporation records.  I have obtained some, and they can provide more names to search, and some of the more wordy ones are quite interesting.

Also try YIVO's Landsmanshaftn Collection:

You may find more info on the landsmanshaftn by searching old digitized newspapers.  One free site to search is:

You may have to try different spellings, as the names of landsmanshaftn often got spelled in many different ways.

Also look at JGSNY's database here:
Many landsmanshaftn had plots in more than one cemetery.

Good luck in your search,
