Bristol Cemetery Association

The Bristol Cemetery Association is managed by a Board of Directors and is responsible for the operation and maintenance of Greenwood Cemetery at the foot of Stoney Hill. Greenwood and St. Joseph Cemeteries are the only two active cemeteries in Bristol. Meehan, Briggs Hill and Varney Cemeteries are maintained by the Town of Bristol.

The cemetery is tax exempt and nonprofit. There are currently seven directors serving on the board. We were saddened by the passing of Larry Gile on June 3, 2018. Larry served for 38 years on the Bristol Cemetery Association. He will be missed. Our annual meeting is held in June each year.

The current cost per grave is $450.00, which includes the perpetual care. Twenty percent of the funds received for each grave are placed in our perpetual care fund. Each grave is allowed one full burial (casket) plus one cremation or two cremations.

The association must be notified before any monuments are placed, graves dug or burials permitted. Lot owners are not permitted to dig for full burials. Digging for cremation burials may be done by lot owners or family members.
