The Sexton is responsible for overseeing burials in our public cemeteries.
Contact Anthony Brillard at 568-3774 or 323-4876 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. Anthony will you provide you with Mike's contact information.
Refer to the Cemetery Ordinance for more information regarding cemetery rules.
