The Marist Missionary Sisters statue, as well as several headstones, was vandalized at St. Patrick’s Cemetery in Watertown last week.

One week after a cemetery in Watertown was vandalized, police are still searching for information that could lead them to suspects, and two local funeral homes have teamed up to offer a cash reward to anyone who can help.

Brasco and Sons Funeral Home, which has locations in Waltham and Belmont, and Joyce Funeral Home in Waltham are offering a total of $2,000 to anyone who can provide information leading to the identity of those responsible for the damage, Watertown police said in a statement Tuesday.

The St. Patrick’s Cemetery, which is owned by the Archdiocese of Boston, was vandalized Nov. 7 around 7 p.m., Watertown police told the Globe at the time.

Seven headstones were knocked over, and a statue dedicated to the Marist Missionary Sisters was toppled from its base and shattered, police said.
