The Town of Manchester's four cemeteries encompass 125 acres with approximately 50 acres undeveloped. The maintenance and development of Manchester's cemeteries is an ongoing process. Though many areas are at capacity, we continue to expand to meet the needs for the residents of the Town of Manchester. Currently, we are developing areas within East, Buckland and Hillstown cemeteries. Hillstown Cemetery is dedicated to veterans, as are sections within East Cemetery.

We provide vital services for interments and disinterments, including preparing the grave site for service, assisting funeral directors and vault companies, and perpetual care of the lot. Our records, which are updated daily, provide valuable information to families and friends of the deceased, funeral homes, monument companies and genealogists.

We are proud of the Town of Manchester Cemeteries' park-like appearance. Our dedicated full-time staff ensures the grass is cut; flowers are planted; trees and bushes are pruned; leaves are cleared; and snow is removed in a timely manner.
