Cemetery Board

The Cemetery Board

The Town of Nelson has two cemeteries: the Nelson Cemetery just south of the village center on Hardy Hill Road and the Munsonville Cemetery on Granite Lake Road. Both cemeteries are maintained and administered by the Cemetery Board of five trustees elected by ballot in accordance with NH RSA 289.

The sale of burial lots is under the direction of the Cemetery Sexton subject to the rules and regulations adopted by the Cemetery Board. All opening of graves and internments is under the supervision of the Cemetery Sexton. The Munsonville Cemetery is now closed to the sale of new lots. Lots are available in Section II of the Nelson Cemetery and an area on the west side of Section I is being developed for cremation lots. A copy of the Rules and Regulations of the Nelson Cemetery can be found in the Town Clerks office.

The Revolutionary War Monument

A large fieldstone monument stands in the old part of the Nelson Cemetery (Section I) as a memorial to the men who left their fields to fight in the Revolutionary War. It was built in 1917 on the 150th anniversary of the founding of our town. The passing years took their toll to the point that repeated patches could not longer keep the monument in repair. Thanks to the generosity of the Bradshaws and the expertise of stonemason James Rodriques the monument was totally rebuilt using most of the original cobble stones and rededicated on Memorial Day of 2004
