Welcome to the Litchfield 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.

Directions given below begin at the intersection of Routes 9/126, which runs more or less east-west, and Hallowell Road, which runs north-south. This intersection, known as Batchelder's Corner or Batchelder's Crossing, is just south of the Litchfield post office. Cemetery names follow a map provided by the Litchfied town office.

All information, especially source material, for inclusion in this web page should be sent to info@vfthomas.com or mailed to "Litchfield Cemeteries; V. F. Thomas Co.; P. O. Box 400; Southwest Harbor, ME 04679".

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