Resting with Nature…. Purissima Cemetery

Circa 1868, a true resting place with nature. Surrounded by massive cedar and pine trees, running alongside the Purissima creek. Sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean. It is Natural Burial at its best.

Perfect for those that want to become one with the Earth… a final resting place that personifies your life.

Ed Bixby, owner of Steelmantown Cemetery in Steelmantown, New Jersey announces the opening of Purissima Cemetery located in Half Moon Bay, in San Mateo County, California. Over the next few months Ed will be working to restore the cemetery to its original natural beauty and replicate the many features associated with Natural Burial including erecting a Chapel on the premises.

Natural burial allows your body and soul to entwine with all the beauty that Mother Nature has to offer:

  • no embalming fluid
  • no concrete vaults
  • burial shrouds, pine and wicker caskets
  • preservation and enhancement of the natural surroundings
  • natural stone markers
  • hand dug burial sites
