Can you let me know if there are any old cemeteries in the town of Holbrook, Massachusetts? I plan on visiting there soon.

Reply from David Allen Lambert, NEHGS Chief Genealogist

Thank you for your question regarding the old cemeteries in Holbrook, Massachusetts. The oldest cemetery in Holbrook is the Union Cemetery (established ca. 1754) located at 199 Union Street.  The only other cemetery in the town is the Wendell Cemetery (established ca. 1815) located at 1030 South Franklin Street.  You will find entries for both of these cemeteries on www.Findagrave.com  NEHGS has gravestone inscription manuscripts for both of these cemeteries if you are interested this hyperlink will bring you to our catalog: http://library.nehgs.org/search~S0?/dCemeteries+--+Massachusetts+--+Holbrook./dcemeteries+massachusetts+holbrook/-3%2C-1%2C0%2CB/exact&FF=dcemeteries+massachusetts+holbrook&1%2C5%2C
