    The Town of Edgartown maintains four cemeteries, each with its own individual style, charm, beauty and historical significance.

    Old Town Cemetery, also known as Tower Hill or Green Hollow, is located on Tower Hill Road, off Katama Road, and sits nestled amongst the pines at the edge of the inner harbor. Graves marking pre-Revolutionary and Revolutionary War heroes are found at this quiet resting place.

Jeffer's Lane Cemetery, also known as Indian Burial Ground or Hilltop Cemetery, is located on Jeffer's Lane on the island of Chappaquiddick. Sitting peacefully overlooking Cape Pogue Pond, it is abutted by conservation land. This cemetery contains both marked and unmarked graves of the Chappaquiddick Wampanoag tribe.
Located in-town between Robinson Road and Cooke Street, is Old Westside Cemetery, which sits amongst giant oaks and colorful maples. It contains Revolutionary and Civil War graves, and also has Colonial-era graves.
The New Westside Cemetery is located directly across Robinson Road, and was established in 1949 as an extension of the Old Westside Cemetery. A beautiful location lined with native trees along quahog-shelled lanes and abutting the town's recreational park, this is the only town cemetery that still has  burial lots available for purchase.
Please see website FAQs for more information about lot sales and other cemetery information.
