Boston area Cemeteries

Last updated: March 17, 2010

If you have an ancestor who lived in the Boston area, you should consider not only Suffolk, but Norfolk and Middlesex county cemeteries. I have added the date the cemetery was established, if known.

When contacting a cemetery, it's always nice to include a donation.  Some cemeteries require it to do any genealogical research.
Common questions to consider:
    Who else is buried with my ancestor?  (usually relatives)
     Did they own other lots and who are buried in them?
     Location? and map of cemetery if you want to locate the headstone.
