Sales of Lots, Burial Rights and Services
Cemetery lots are available for purchase at Pine Grove and Wright cemeteries. Please contact the Cemetery Department to schedule an appointment to view available gravesites and for information on costs and the funeral process.
Should you need a blank INTERMENT ORDER form, please click here. Westford Cemetery Department requires that an Interment Order be signed before any burial can take place.
Should you need a blank MONUMENT PERMIT APPLICATION, please click here. To place a headstone on an owned lot, a monument company will use this form for your request (they will have this form, or get it, you don't have to bring it). A lot owner can work with any monument company they wish. The Cemetery Supervisor must approve the permit application sent in by the monument company before the work is completed. There is a $25 fee required to be paid either to the monument company (which will give to the Cemetery Dept with the permit application) or paid directly to us, in a check made out to the Town of Westford.
For an Info Sheet on purchasing and caring for headstones (monuments), flat markers and veterans markers, please click here.
For an application for a Veterans Marker, please click here. Veterans markers cannot be requested until after the death of a veteran. Markers are free from the US government for honorably discharged veterans and installed free by the Cemetery Department. [Note: Veterans who served after 1980 must have had 24 months of active duty to qualify; veterans with the National Guard or Reserves must have served a minimum of 20 years.] To obtain a marker proof of honorable discharge is required; should you need to request military discharge papers (DD214 forms) please click here.

All Westford cemeteries are Perpetual Care cemeteries, which means 60% of the burial fee is set aside in a fund that ensures the maintenance of the gravesite in perpetuity. The Westford Cemetery Commission has unanimously voted in favor of establishing a new price structure effective December 1, 2021.
