There are 52 known cemeteries in present day Rehoboth. Persons researching their ancestors from Rehoboth need to remember that Rehoboth encompassed the present day communities of  Attleboro, Cumberland, East Providence, Pawtucket, Rehoboth, and Seekonk, as well as parts of Barrington and Swansea. Parts of Warren and Bristol may have also been included. This site will eventually include the cemeteries databases of all of those cities and towns. However we are presently limiting our cemeteries to those within the present day boundaries and those are not all complete.  We suggest that if you do not find what you are looking for on this site, that you include the RI Cemeteries Database and the Swansea Cemetery Listing in your search as these include many of the colonists from Old Rehoboth. 

Please Note

We encourage the research of our heritage but if you decide to visit any of the cemeteries, please obtain permission from the Rehoboth Cemetery Commission via the town hall and use care. The grave stones and turf are fragile. Massachusetts law restricts restoration of any kind except to a few authorized individuals.

Most of the cemeteries were identified in the Beers Survey of 1878 and by Trim, the renowned Rehoboth historian and genealogist. Depending on the reference, the cemeteries are known by different titles. We refer to all cemeteries in present day Rehoboth by the Rehoboth Historical Cemetery Numbers (RHC#) maintained by the Town of Rehoboth, Ma. For ease in identifying the correct cemetery, a cross reference between these numbers, the Bristol County Cemeteries Database numbers and the common names is listed in the matrix to the right.

The Blanding Library on Bay State Road in Rehoboth houses the major part of local genealogical information in its "Trim Room"
