Cemetery Commission

The Cemetery Commission is in the process of creating this web page.  Questions and suggestions are welcomes.


Annual Town Meeting authorized the Cemetery Commission in 1912.  The three members are elected officials, serving three year terms.

This Commission oversees the care of three town cemeteries - West Cemetery on Leverett Rd., the Pratt Corner Road Cemetery, and the Lock's Pond Cemetery near Lake Wyola.  There are plots available in all three. Non-residents are allowed to be buried in all town cemeteries. There is a fee for a burial plot.  That information will be available here soon.

The Cemetery Commission approved regulations for Natural Burials in the West Cemetery in 2017.  Information for Family Cemeteries on private property is available from the Board of Health boardhealth@shutesbury.org
