Friday Funny ~ Cemetery Challenge for Halloween

Here are three cemeteries I've visited with weird body part names:

Hooksett, New Hampshire's Head Cemetery


Sterling, Massachusetts  Leg Cemetery

and don't forget

Dunstable, Massachusetts has a Blood Cemetery

It's almost Halloween and I'm wondering if we can put together a collage of cemeteries named after body parts.  After all, there might be a Foote Family Burial Ground, or even a cemetery named Hart, Cheek, Nail, Soul, etc. 

If you have a photo, email it to me at before October 23rd, and I'll put something together for Halloween!  Don't forget to send your name so I can give you full credit on the blog post! 

UPDATE-  Many people have posted names of cemeteries and links to their "Find A Grave" photos on my Facebook page.  This doesn't count. I'm looking for individuals to send me their own (non-copyrighted) photos via email or Facebook.  I can't use Find A Grave photos on my blog (and you shouldn't use them on your websites, social media or data bases either!).

  1. Haven't found any cemeteries named for body parts, but while we're all touring around New England hunting our ancestors' burial sites, we can always stop for ice cream and visit Ben and Jerry's dead flavors cemetery, a field of headstones marking ice cream flavors that were "killed" due to low sales! You can check it out on's website, under Ben and Jerry's Factory Tour and Flavor Graveyard, Waterbury, Vermont. Now that's funny!

    1. Mary Kay, you missed my blog post from 2013 on the Flavor Graveyard?

  2. posted a long list on your Facebook page
