The Wolfeboro Parks and Recreation Department maintains 32 of the town’s 78 known cemeteries and burial sites. Each summer our Maintenance and Grounds staff mow, trim and improve the existing cemeteries, while the American Legion places flags on the graves of veterans in the cemeteries.
Several of the town maintained cemeteries have over 400 grave sites (Wolfeboro Center, South Wolfeboro), while some are smaller historic cemeteries with only a handful of grave sites.
The largest and most visible cemetery in Wolfeboro, Lakeview Cemetery on North Main St, is privately maintained (603-569-2031). Many other smaller cemeteries are also maintained privately.
The town is also in the process of developing a new cemetery on Middleton Rd. to be able to meet future demand for burial sites in Wolfeboro.
If you are aware of a maintenance issue in one of the town maintained cemeteries listed below, please fill out our online Service Request Form or call the Parks and Recreation Department at 603-569-5639.
If you are interested in purchasing a burial plot, please contact the Town Manager’s Secretary Anne Marble at 603-569-8161.
