Chaplin Cemeteries

A cemetery plot can be purchased at the Town Hall at the Administrative Assistant's office.  The Administrative Assistant is available during regular Town Hall hours and can be reached at (860) 455-0073 extension 310. 

Maps are available for the cemeteries with available plots/graves for purchase.  You can select a grave for a full burial or a smaller plot for cremations.

A full grave for one person costs $250.00

A smaller plot for cremations (note, depending on the size purchased, more than one cremation can be used for one grave purchase) costs $150.00

Four (4) granite markers are required for both full grave sites and cremation sites.  The markers will be installed at each corner of the grave engraved with the first initial of the last name.  These markers designate the area of the purchased grave (note:  if more than one gravesite is purchased for a family plot, only 4 markers are needed). The four markers cost $320.00

Once the plot/grave is purchased, the town's Administrative Assistant will submit the paperwork for the markers.  She will issue a deed for the purchased plots/grave to the purchaser.  This deed will be given to the funeral home by the purchaser to continue processing the burial.  If this is a future burial, the purchaser will hold the deed until needed.  

Headstones are not purchased through the Town Hall.

The Cemetery Sexton, Eugene "Gene" Boomer can be reached at 860-455-0057.
