Welcome to the Massachusetts Cemetery Association

Founded in 1944 and Incorporated in 1970, we are an educational association that represents the interests of all cemeterians in the Commonwealth.Massachusetts Cemetery Association members consist of municipal, religious, non–secular, non profit and private cemeteries and suppliers.

The Association believes that our cemeteries help the living honor those who were dear to them and that our cemeteries tell a message of love, faith and history to all who visit them.

We continually strive to meet the following objectives:

  • To promote the advancement of knowledge in the operation and maintenance of cemeteries.
  • To facilitate the exchange of information between members.
  • To create and maintain high ethical standards in the conduct of cemetery administration.
  • To secure the advantages to be obtained by mutual cooperation.
  • To provide for the proper care and maintenance of cemeteries, mausoleums and columbarium’s so that they will remain permanent places of beauty.
  • To distribute information relating to the operations of cemeteries, mausoleums and columbaria.

The Massachusetts Cemetery Association monitors legislative and regulatory issues that are filed in the Massachusetts Legislature. We publish a “Consumers Guide to Cemetery and Funeral Services”. Each year we hold informational meetings, seminars and programs on issues pertinent to our membership. Our annual meeting is in April, Suppliers Day in September and a Fall luncheon Seminar in November. In addition we conduct a Round table Meeting in February on various topics.

News and Events:

The Fall Luncheon Seminar will be on November 15, 2019, at Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School.  ______
