All Souls Chapel is a special place to hold a pre-cremation service or family viewing of a cremation. The chapel consists of one large atrium and two small viewing rooms. The main entrance is framed by finely crafted stained glass and accessible to all. Inside, comfortable seats face a raised platform with lectern. The lush red carpet, marble columns, chandeliers, and wood-paneled ceiling all create a luxurious atmosphere. The two viewing rooms are to the right of the platform and offer a private window into the crematory.
Location & Fees
The Chapel is located on the grounds of St. Michael’s Cemetery, in Astoria, Queens. The rental fee is $100 for the first 30 minutes (in combination with a cremation at All Soul’s), and then $100 for each additional 15 minutes. If you would like to rent the chapel only (no cremation), the rental fee for the first 30 minutes is $300.
Separately, if you would like to use one of the viewing rooms to view the cremation, or a family member would like to start the cremation fire, there will be a $100 fee.
