|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Claypit Cemetery is located behind the Brunswick Bowling Alley. It is Dracut's oldest cemetery. The area in which Claypit is located was once part of Dracut. The area today is called Pawtucketville and it was part of Dracut until it was annexed by the city Lowell in 1874. After the annexation of Pawtucketville, the town of Dracut retained title to the cemetery. Over the years, Claypit has gone by other names such as the Old Burying Ground and the Pierce/Coburn Cemetery.
This cemetery is referred to as GR1 Old Ground, Varnum Avenue in the "Vital Records of Dracut, Massachusetts to the year 1850".
