Montefiore Cemetery, also known as "Old Montefiore Cemetery", is a Jewish cemetery in Springfield Gardens, Queens, New York, established in 1908. The cemetery is called by several names, including Old Montefiore, Springfield, or less commonly, just Montefiore. More than 150,000 have been buried there.[2]

The Shomrim Society, the fraternal society of Jewish officers in the New York City Police Department, has a burial plot for their members in Montefiore Cemetery, and it contains a large granite obelisk erected in 1949.[3]
