THE STONINGTON CEMETERY ASSOCIATION
WHO WE ARE
The Stonington Cemetery Association was established in 1849 and continues to this day as an active non-sectarian cemetery open to all. Our historic grounds are located on a quiet scenic road outside the Borough of Stonington Stonington, CT. The Cemetery Associatin is a non-profit 301(c)13 organzation administered by a Board of Directors.
We encourage you to visit the grounds to enjoy the tranquility of our location, to explore historic grave markers, and to locate friends and loved ones buried here. These pages will help you find information on plot purchasing and arrange for burial services. We will also assist with locating burial records.
In 2018, we were awarded a listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

VETERAN GRAVE FLAGGING
We have removed flags from the cemetery to prevent
winter weather damage to flags.
If you would like your family flag to remain in place
during winter months, please contact us via our email address
or phone at 860-535-1706.
If your family member is a veteran whose grave isn't flagged,
please let us know.
If you'd like to help with our Memorial Day flagging,
please contact us via email or phone.
