Our cemeteries are intended for the interment of those entitled to burial according to the General Laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Chapter 114 and the Rules and Regulations of the Town of Cohasset. We operate and manage the Cemeteries at the direction of the Select Board acting as Cemetery Commissioners. 

Our staff meets families with requests and needs for burials, and works with Funeral Directors, and monument companies.  We are happy to help families that are in need of historic family burial information, and a visit to cemeteries.  

We coordinate Funeral Directors, vault vendors and monument companies to assure a respectful burial service for loved ones. Working with the Veterans Service Officer we assure that all Veterans graves have an American flag on Memorial Day as required by Massachusetts State law. 

This is a Cemetery

Lives are commemorated ~ deaths are recorded ~

families are reunited ~ memories are made tangible ~

and love is undisguised.

This is a cemetery.

Communities accord respect, families bestow reverence,

historians seek information and our heritage is thereby enriched.

Testimonies of devotion,

pride and remembrance

are carved in stone to pay warm tribute

to accomplishments and to the life ~

not death ~ of a loved one.

The cemetery is homeland for family memorials

that are a sustaining source of comfort to the living.

A cemetery is a history of people ~

a perpetual record of yesterday and

a sanctuary of peace and quiet today.

A cemetery exists because every life 

is worth loving and remembering ~ always.
