<br>The above list of cemeteries was meant to be all-inclusive for Brattleboro and W Brattleboro. However, the author knows of a private plot that seems to no longer exist. Also, Google maps indicated a Dalem Cemetery which I was unable to locate. Other private cemeteries may exist in the area.

+
Many other cemeteries exist in bordering communities. For instance, in Guilford there is Christ Church Cemetery, and Guilford Center Cemetery. The Vernon area includes the following cemeteries: Billings, Groll, Baker, Tyler, Maplehurst, and N Cemetery. This list is not all-inclusive and the cemeteries were not visited.
