There are five cemeteries available for burials: Old Hopkinton Cemetery adjacent to the Town Hall, New Hopkinton Cemetery located by exit 5 to Route 89, Contoocook Village Cemetery, Stumpfield Cemetery, and Blackwater Cemetery on Dustin Road. Each cemetery is divided into sections, lots, and plots. A plot measures 5'x10' and costs $600.00. A lot measures 10'x20' and costs $2,400.00. The Trustees allow one full burial per plot or four cremations in one plot. There is an additional cost of $150.00 after the first cremation in the same plot. Cornerstones are required by the Trustees at a cost of $40.00 per set. The cemeteries remain open for burials from May 1 to November 1 with special exceptions dependent upon weather conditions.
The Trustees have established two memorial gardens, one in Contoocook Village Cemetery and one in Old Hopkinton Cemetery. The Memorial Gardens are for cremations only. The plots are 2'x2' and cost $400.00. The cost includes a flush granite marker with the person's name and year of birth and death. Two creations may be placed in one plot and both names can be engraved on the flush marker.
