Welcome to the Bethel Cemeteries website. 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 “Bethel Cemeteries c/o V. F. Thomas Co.; 183 Pleasant St., Apt. 1; Canton, ME  04221”.

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






The cemetery names below are from a list that was obtained from the town office on 11 May 2016 with one exception. Walker Mills Cemetery on the list has a South Bethel Cemetery sign, and the latter name is used below. Click on any name, and you will be taken to an entry for that cemetery.
   In addition to these fifteen cemeteries, the introduction (by Stanley Russell Howe) to the book Bethel, Maine, Cemeteries: A Listing of Gravestone Inscriptions compiled by Agnes H. Haines and Mildred O. Jackson contains the following: “The late Eva M. Bean cites other possible gravesites in her book EAST BETHEL ROAD: one at the foot of Blake Hill (within sight of Route 26), one on Holt Hill in East Bethel and one below Bean’s Corner at East Bethel, the so-called "Peary" Cemetery.“
