In 1855, on Christmas Eve, a cemetery was
established on the east side of what is
known today as Hillside Road. Additional
land on the road’s west side, higher in
elevation and with a sweeping view of the
Connecticut River valley, was acquired in
1905. Today the East Cemetery and the
West Cemetery occupy more than 12 acres
slightly north of the town’s Historic District.
Beginning in 2005, the community of
Cromwell came together to revitalize the
Cemetery association and to restore the
beauty of the grounds. Local residents and
businesses donated their time and skills
and through their efforts demonstrated so
much that is positive within our community.
The Cromwell Hillside Cemetery Association
is dedicated to preserving the quiet dignity
of the resting place you have chosen for
yourself and your loved ones.
Burial lots in East and West Cemeteries
are available for purchase.
