Welcome to Pittsfield Cemetery and Crematory
The Pittsfield Cemetery and Crematory is a Nonsectarian Non-Profit Corporation organized in 1850 to fulfill a community need. The Corporation is operated by its Proprietors (Directors) who are all persons owning burial lots in the cemetery. The direct operations and control of the cemetery is exercised by an unpaid Board of Directors who are elected to the Board by the Proprietors at the Annual Meeting of the Corporation in December. The Directors in turn elect a President, Clerk and a Treasurer. The Directors will also appoint a Superintendent, who has general supervision of the grounds and physical properties of the Corporation.
