Sexton Aaron Smith - arranges burials and manages paperwork
The expertise of our local granite workers is evident in all the cemeteries in Groton. From the tiny Gray family plot on Glover Rd., (where Dominicus Gray was buried situated so that he could view his house as he rose to heaven), to the grave site of the "sleeping sentinel" in west Groton, our town cemeteries are beautiful and peaceful places where a person can contemplate and remember Groton’s people and history.
