Saint Raymond's Cemetery is a Roman Catholic cemetery at 2600 Lafayette Avenue in the Throggs Neck section of The Bronx, New York City. The cemetery is composed of two separate locations: the older section (main entrance is located at 1201 Balcom Avenue), located west of the Hutchinson River Parkway; and the newer section (where most present-day burials now take place), which is east of the Parkway. The Bronx–Whitestone Bridge is located adjacent to the cemetery's newer section, while the neighboring Throgs Neck Bridge can be seen from a distance.

The cemetery is owned and operated by the Archdiocese of New York and was named in honor of Saint Raymond of Penyafort, a 12th century Catalan-Spanish saint. It is the only Catholic cemetery in the Bronx and is one of the busiest cemeteries in the United States with nearly 4,000 burials each year. The cemetery provides in-ground burials, in-ground crypt burials in the new Holy Cross section, Mausoleum burials and niches for cremains and burials in the base of the gigantic granite Cross located in the Holy Cross section.
