Cemetery notes and/or description:
Burial Hill is the second cemetery in Plymouth, preceded by the Coles Hill Burial Ground. The exact date as to when this ground became used as a cemetery is not known. There are no written records of the earliest burials. The earliest grave markers were made of wood, and none exist today. The site was used as a fort from 1621 until 1676. The earliest engraved headstone marks the grave of Edward Gray, who died in 1681. There are only 7 headstones that precede 1700.

The "Friends of Burial Hill" have done a tremendous amount of work to improve and preserve this site for future generations.

The "Plymouth Antiquarian Society" conduct free guided tours on the first Saturday of every month (except January).

The Massachusetts Historical Commission refers to this cemetery in MACRIS as PLY818.
