Welcome to the Blue Hill Cemeteries web site. The purpose of this site is to provide basic cemetery information and pertinent notes so individual researchers will not have to “reinvent the wheel” by tracking down the same material that others have already found.

All information, especially source material, for inclusion in this web page should be sent to info@vfthomas.com or mailed to “Blue Hill Cemeteries” at the address at the top of this page.

A little work by each of us will save a lot of work for all of us.





Below are the names of Blue Hill’s cemeteries as reported in The Burying Places of Blue Hill, Maine: A Gravestone Registry from the 1700’s to 1986 compiled by R. T. Horton, a copy of which was viewed in the Blue Hill town office on 24 July 2018. Locations given in the book (and copied below) will be replaced by GPS coordinates and directions as each cemetery is visited. Click on a name and you will be taken to an entry for that cemetery.
