To see availability in Pleasant Grove, please click Cemetery Location Finder link above and select Lot Status from Themes. Rosedale Cemeteries have not been mapped fully, data from these cemeteries is more challenging. We will continue to work on Rosedale cemeteries. Please note if you have recently purchased a lot it may not show on map as we update on a yearly basis. Any questions or corrections, please email Ruth Fitzgerald @ fitzgeraldr@manchester.ma.us.
