Directions. From Center of town at town green take Norwich Ave few miles take right on Chestnut Hill Road, first left after Route 2 entrance take left onto Palmer Road. Short street at very end park and take a hike up the hill 100 feet or so to top and this abandoned cemetery is at top of hill. Take dirt path up to top of hill and Cemetery is is middle of woods.
The cemetery is overgrown, several field stones, some very hard to read, some laying down. I have not found out who owns it, but it appears abandoned.
I have transcribed from my reading when I walked this cemetery on Sep 11, 2003. It includes all existing and legible headstones.- Frank E Grimes
