Cemetery Commission

The Cemetery Commissioners are volunteers who are responsible for the care and management of the town's cemeteries.  Each commissioner is elected for a term of three years.

Our main public cemetery is the Assonet Burying Ground on South Main Street.  Cemetery lots are also available in the East Freetown Cemetery on Pocasset Lane (off Chace Road).  A special area for veterans and their spouses is available in the Assonet Burying Ground, and interested persons are encouraged to ask about this area.

Special Note: The Chace, Rounsevell, and White cemeteries in East Freetown are all private cemeteries operated by independent associations. All affairs in these cemeteries are conducted by their associations; the Cemetery Commission cannot help you with these cemeteries.
