Welcome to the Buckfield Cemeteries home page. The purpose of this page 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 directions given below begin at the intersection of Routes 117 and 140. Both routes are considered to run north–south. Route 117 north leads to Turner, and Route 117 south leads to South Paris.

All information, especially source material, for inclusion in this web page should be sent to info@vfthomas.com or mailed to “Buckfield 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.
