History and Beauty in St. Petersburg’s Sunnyside Cemetery

The Sunnyside Cemetery is one of St. Petersburg's oldest and most beautiful cemeteries. And work is under way to expand the site and add more opportunities for in-ground, above-ground, family estates, and cremation options. The cemetery is partnered with Anderson McQueen, a company with 70 years of history in the funeral business in St. Petersburg.

Established in 1895, Sunnyside Cemetery was first known as the Ellis Graveyard. The cemetery was reserved only for family members of founder Nathaniel Ellis. In 1904, the cemetery's new owner formed the Sunnyside Cemetery Association. By the following year, Sunnyside Cemetery opened to the public. Today, this St. Petersburg landmark remains a quaint and historically rich cemetery for families throughout the community. Newer sections and options provide a respectful addition to accommodate more families who seek a serene, beautiful option to larger cemeteries.

In addition to the Sunnyside Cemetery, Anderson McQueen also has two convenient St. Petersburg funeral home locations to serve you. Our Tyrone Family Tribute Center is on 38th North and our original funeral home is located on Dr. M.L. King Street North.
