Mission Statement

The Board of Directors of Hingham Cemetery is dedicated to the maintenance, restoration, and perpetuation of the grounds and monuments of its historic burial place.  Our objective is to offer the people of Hingham and their families burial grounds and services consistent with the Town's environment and the Cemetery's beautiful setting.  Preserving and maintaining the unique arboretum style of our cemetery while simultaneously developing and improving new sites and areas in a financially responsible manner is our commitment to our past and future.

To fulfill our mission, we recognize:

Our mission is a reaffirmation of Adam Wallace Thaxter's wish upon his gift of land in 1837 to establish Hingham Cemetery:  that the condition of the cemetery should correspond "with those feelings of respect and gratitude...toward [Hingham’s] distinguished ancestors whose remains are interred within its limits."
