Question:  I received a death record from 1871 from Oxford, Massachusetts.  However I am unclear as to what Catholic cemeteries exist in that town.  As the author of a book on Massachusetts Cemeteries I thought you might be able to help.


Answer: In Oxford there is only one Catholic cemetery.  St. Roch's Catholic Cemetery was consecrated in 1858.  It is located Federal Hill Road in Oxford, and the records are held by the rectory.  You can contact St. Roch's Rectory at  (508) 987-8987.
