|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This is a privately-owned cemetery that was established in 1867. The burial records can be found at the Rectory of the Saint Thomas Aquinas Church. This cemetery was preceeded by the First Saint Thomas Aquinas Cemetery and succeeded in the early 1950s by the new Saint Thomas Aquinas Cemetery, both of which are further north on Center Street.
Note that Death Certificates and obituaries might only state "Saint Thomas Aquinas Cemetery", with no mention of the street. Contact the cemetery to learn the correct cemetery to ensure the creation of correctly placed memorials.
The Massachusetts Historical Commission refers to this cemetery in MACRIS as BRD801.
