Becket, Berkshire, Massachusetts
NORTH CEMETERY (aka NORTH BECKET CEMETERY) is located on Main Street (Route 8), across the street from 2994 Main Steet. It was established in 1854. Well kept and maintained. Old part of the cemetery is on both sides of the hill as you enter, and the old gravestones are in good condition.
As a follow up to the above; a visit to the cemetery 7 September 2013 showed a marked deterioration in the condition of the older stones. Many of my ancestors died in the early to mid 1800s, and some of these stones are beginning to show age and some are no longer there. Other stones are displaying erosion in the carving of names.
For the newer part of the cemetery, turn right at the top of the hill.
