The Sexton is responsible for overseeing burials in our public cemeteries.

Contact Doreen Berry 207-649-2689 if you need to conduct a burial for confirmation of the location of your lot and the standards for burials of both urns and caskets.

There is no fee but you must go through the sexton to make sure everything is done properly. 

The Selectmen have appointed Mike Abbott as the official grave digger in Thorndike's public cemeteries. Please be sure your funeral home is aware of this as they are not allowed to hire anyone else to dig a grave. The Sexton  will you provide you with Mike's contact information.  

There are folders available upon request at the Town Office to guide you through buying, lots and the process to go through. Just ask the Clerk

Refer to the Cemetery Ordinance for more information regarding cemetery rules.
