This cemetery is owned by the Pembroke Historical Society. It surrounds the Pembroke Friends Meeting House, a building that was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2006. The meeting house was built in 1706 by Robert Barker with later 19th-century additions. It is one of the oldest Quaker meeting houses in the United States. This meeting house was used by local Quakers from 1706 until 1876 when the meeting house was closed and its members transferred to meetings in either Sandwich or New Bedford. Today the meeting house is still occasionally used by area Quakers.
The Massachusetts Historical Commission does not refer to this cemetery in MACRIS.
