The Trustees of Cemeteries are elected by the voters of Gilmanton and maintain municipal cemeteries and abandoned burial grounds in accordance with RSA 289 and the Gilmanton Cemetery Regulations.
The Trustees manage and care for two active cemeteries, Buzzell and Beech Grove, and 37 other burial and historic sites. Many sites have been reclaimed and require only seasonal maintenance. Some are being reclaimed with the repair and construction of walls, fences and gates, the trimming of trees to eliminate falling branches that can shatter antique head stones, the installation of steps and the repair and resetting of damaged stones. A few sites remain where reclamation has not begun.
The Trustees thank the voters and members of the community for their support and assistance in preserving and maintaining these important links to Gilmanton’s heritage. Please do not hesitate to contact any Trustee with comments, questions or recommendations.
