Cemetery Department

There are seven (7) cemeteries in Princeton MA owned and operated by the Town of Princeton under the supervision of the Princeton Cemetery Commission:  Woodlawn, North, South, West, Parker I, Parker II, and Meetinghouse. Boylston Cemetery is maintained by the Town but is a private cemetery. 

Lots are conveyed by a deed which gives the purchaser the sole and exclusive right of burial and to provide an approved memorial. Ownership of the land remains with the Town of Princeton and is subject to the rules and regulations of the Princeton Cemetery Department and Massachusetts General Law Chapter 114.

All cemeteries are closed from approximately November 15th through April 15th. Based on inclement weather, or weather patterns, the cemeteries may be closed/opened later. In April and November, visitors are welcome to contact us to obtain information on the status of cemetery openings/closings.
