The cemetery, which dates back to colonial days, has recently identified new areas within its 13+ acres where burial lots may be purchased.


Our thanks to all of you who have supported our efforts in reaching
our short- and long-term goals of preserving this lovely arboretum.

Two town-owned monuments (the Settlers’ Monument seen on the town seal, and the Civil War obelisk) are located in the Hingham Cemetery.

The Hingham Cemetery Corporation is managed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors supported in large part through contributions to Friends of Hingham Cemetery, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. It receives no funding from the town of Hingham or any other municipality. Your fully tax-deductible gift will go completely to upkeep and restoration.
