This cemetery is owned by the Town of Foxboro. Prior to 2003, the cemetery was part of Camp Saint Augustine. The camp is now part of the Cocasset River Recreation Area. The cemetery is the burial ground of two religous orders and several children.

The Brothers section is the eastern portion of the cemetery. The entrance is here, along with a large wooden cross. All but one stone in this section are flat. The ground here is bare. The men here were all brothers of the Anglican Order of the Society of St. John the Evangelist (SSJE) of Cambridge, MA.

The Sisters section is the western portion of the cemetery. The entrance is from the Brothers section. The majority of the stones here are uniform. The ground here is covered with moss. The women here were all sisters of the Anglican Order of Saint Anne (OSA) of Arlington, MA.

There are about 6 children who are interred here. They were buried in the northeast corner of the sisters section. These graves were marked with wooden cross, which are long since gone. The children died between 1916-1928, when the Sisters ran the camp as a home women and children with tuberculosis.
