Town Cemetery Running Low on Space for New Burials

Print More

Space is running low at Watertown’s Ridgelawn Cemetery, but there are some options for opening more space.

Public Works Superintendent Gerald Mee said the cemetery has 3-5 years left before filling the currently available spaces.

More space can be freed up, but it will take some work, he told the Town Council recently.

“We could take some roadways out and add cemetery space,” Mee said.

There is also a section near the Waltham line which has not been opened for burials, he said, but they might have some water projects in the near future, Mee said.
