Our company was founded in 1883 by Joseph Polchinski, Sr, who eventually worked along with his sons Edward and Arthur. Michael Ciaramella, Sr came on board to manage the company once the sons had passed on. Michael K. Ciaramella joined his Dad in 1973 andthey continued the heralded reputation the Polchinski family began of offering uncompromising service and the highest quality and standards the industry would allow. After 45 years with this company, Michael K. continues today as in the past, leading Polchinski Memorials, Inc. to help families honor “A Life Well Lived”. With our Hawthorne location in Central Westchester County and strong affiliation with our community, we have been privileged to design and build monuments and mausoleums in the Cemetery of the Gate of Heaven, Kensico Cemetery, Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, Mt. Calvary, Sharon Gardens as well as many of the cemeteries in the tri-state area.

In this website, we have presented a small portfolio of our work erected in these cemeteries. It is our sincere hope that this website will be of help to you as you begin the process of selecting a monument or mausoleum, or simply provide a venue to engrave an existing memorial. We hope you will call upon us and eventually you, too, will become one of our satisfied families who are comforted by our professionalism and expertise.
