A Note About These Pages

This is the total extent of what I currently have on cemetaries in Worcester.

I don't have a list of graves from any other cemetaries available.

I don't know how to find your long lost relatives online, etc.

Futher information on this subject can be probably be found at the Worcester Historical Society. I'm not a member, and don't know much about what they have, but I'm sure it's more than I have.

This is not an official page of the city of Worcester. The views contained within this site is not from any official or funded by the city in anyway.
