Single upright stone graves for two burials are available in the Richardson’s Way section. These graves include a lawn crypt to receive the casket and the foundation to place a three foot high by two foot wide by one foot thick upright stone constructed of gray granite. The stone is purchased by the family.
Installation of markers/foundations will commence after the spring thaw, approximately mid April 2016.
Flat marker single graves are available in the Maplewood or Restland sections. These graves for two burials include the lawn crypt to receive the caskets. They may be marked with either a bronze of granite flat marker two foot by one foot. The marker type is determined by the section selected.
Triple depth graves are available in the Richardson’s Way section. When two graves are not enough and four graves are too much, these graves are the perfect solution. These graves include a single triple depth lawn crypt and the foundation to place a three foot high by two foot wide by one foot thick upright stone constructed of gray granite. The stones are purchased by the family.
We are offering burial space for cremated remains in our Urn Garden. Each Urn Garden grave will accommodate four restricted sized permanent urns. These are flat bronze marker graves. For additional information please call us at 617-387-0800.

All motor vehicles must be kept under control at all times and at no time shall vehicles drive through the gates or within the cemetery at a speed in excess of 15 miles per hour. All drivers must have in their possession a full and valid license. Student driving is not allowed. All vehicles must park on paved surfaces to prevent damaging the lawns.
