Cemetery notes and/or description:
In 1663 the town bought one acre of land off of Edman Elleat for a burying place which in now the Union Cemetery. This was enlarged in 1886 and $100 appropriated "to improve old part of Union Cemetery" in 1894. The earliest legible grave markers date from the early eighteenth century.

The most noteworthy grave is that of the beloved poet John Greenleaf Whittier, who for 56 years until his death in 1892 was Amesbury's most distinguished citizen.

The cemetery occupies about 18.2 acres. The earliest death date is 1663.

The Massachusetts Historical Commission refers to this cemetery in MACRIS as AME.807 Amesbury Union Cemetery - Bartlett Cemetery.

This cemetery is referred to as GR1 Union Cemetery in the "Vital Records of Amesbury Massachusetts to the end of the year 1849."
