Old North Cemetery

on 5/24/2012

The Old North Cemetery, also known as the Old Indian Cemetery, is located on the west side of Cedar Street between Ashland Street and Turner Road in Holliston, MA.

The attached Name Index and Layout for the Old North Cemetery were prepared in July 2011.   The index spreadsheet contains the row and column number in the layout spreadsheet for the deceased.   The Name Index is sorted first by last name, then by first name and then by middle name or middle initial.  Several stones were inscribed with initials only.  These were entered in the last name column of the Name Index.  In a few cases, a number appears with the initials on a stone, such as “No. 6” appearing over “A.W.” on a stone.  The Layout is laid out facing west (east at the bottom, west at the top).

EXAMPLE:  Open the Index,  look for SHADALSKI, Elizabeth J.  The location code is C26.  Open the layout spreadsheet, go across the top to column C, scroll down the rows to row 26.  This is Elizabeth's relative location in the cemetery.  She is approximately on the left side and about 1/4 of the way from the back.

FOR SMARTPHONE USERS: We have condensed the information into a smaller file which is viewable from a small screen device.  We have divided the cemetery up into a 5x5 grid.  Locations are like on a map.  The letters are left/right, the numbers are back/front.  You are starting at the left back corner (A1).
