Holy Sepulchre Cemetery and Mausoleum is an American Roman Catholic cemetery in Totowa, New Jersey, named after the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, thus associated with the Resurrection of Jesus.

The cemetery was founded as the parish cemetery of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Paterson. It has been in operation since the early 1840s, incorporating some of the original cemeteries in Paterson.[1]

The cemetery holds the plot for the remains for the Franciscan friars of Holy Name Province, which serves the Eastern Seaboard of the United States.
