Welcome to
Cohasset Central Cemetery

Overlooking Cohasset's Little Harbor as its terrain slopes to water’s edge, Cohasset Central Cemetery is a place of great beauty and peace. Active for almost three centuries and containing approximately 500 gravestones in its 4.5 acres, markers of slate, marble, and granite are witness to the passage of time and to changing fortune, belief, custom and style.

Cohasset Central Cemetery is privately owned by its lot owners. The Board of Directors is charged with maintaining and preserving the character and integrity of the cemetery as well as its physical and fiscal viability.
