|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
In the "Vital Records of Bradford, Massachusetts to the end of the year 1849" this cemetery is referred to as GR2 Ancient Burying Ground at East Bradford, afterwards Groveland. (Prior to March 8, 1850 Groveland was a part of Bradford.)
Oldest headstone is 1723.
Frequently confused with the Ancient Burying Ground in Bradford (now Haverhill). Groveland used to be East Bradford which enhances the confusion. The soil is very sandy and drainage is a problem. The cemetery is under active maintenance and restoration. Cemetery webpage is here:

Stones predominantly face west. Early morning when the sun casts light from the side is an optimal time for photography. Late afternoon sun will wash out the inscriptions.
