Welcome to the Byron 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.

Byron Village Road intersections Route 17 in two places, with the more northern intersection near the Coos Canyon picnic area, Byron Town Office, and Coos Canyon School museum. All directions below begin from this northern intersection.

All information, especially source material, for inclusion in this web page should be sent to info@vfthomas.com or mailed to “Byron 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.
   Thank you to the Town Clerk (as of 12 May 2016) of Byron and Tim Sirois (who formerly mowed all the cemeteries in Byron) for their help with this page.
