There are currently three cemeteries in Paramarino, all of them on Kwattaweg (Kwatta street) in the center of the city.

The old Sephardic cemetery and the old Ashkenazi cemetery were used since around 1700 until 1847 and numbered 800 to 1000 graves each.

The land of the old Sephardic cemetery was sold a decade algo.
The deceased were moved to the existing Sephardic cemetery and the tombstones are resting on the yard of Neve Shalom synagogue.

In the old Ashkenazi cemetery, many tombs are in excellent conditions even though the cemetery has no fence.
