Important Information Concerning COVID-19

Sharon Memorial Park would like to acknowledge and thank all of our partners in helping families during this difficult time.  Please click here to view our video appreciation.


The Federal Government has established a Funeral Assistance Program through FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) for families who have had the passing of a loved one from COVID-19.  For information on this program, please click here to be directed to their website.


Sharon Memorial Park is sensitive to your concerns about the impact of COVID-19.  We are protective of families visiting the park, either for making arrangements or attending services. In accordance with the protocols outlined by the CDC, WHO and the local Department of Public Health, we have increased our diligence in sanitizing surfaces, door handles, and other high traffic areas. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and will respond as necessary. We continue to be here to serve the community.  Please note the following:

The Grounds:
For anyone coming to the cemetery, please remember to practice social distancing and to wear a mask when not in a vehicle.  The park will continue to be open to the public during its regular hours from 7:30 AM to dusk. Please use the main entrance on Dedham Street as the primary point of entry and exit.

Maintenance requests:
Requests are handled in the order in which they are received and are weather permitting.

The Welcome Center:
The Welcome Center is closed to the public.  It is critical we be consistent in this regard and there will be no exceptions.  Accordingly, visitors are encouraged to use our online services at to find loved ones, get directions to their location, view, and print park maps and get general information.  Outdoor restroom facilities are available – located in the staff parking area on the side of the Welcome Center.

Business Office:
The office remains open for all Cemetery business by phone [781-828-7216] or email [] only.

We are scheduling a limited number of unveilings.  Please contact our Memorial Installation and Unveiling Coordinator by phone [781-828-7216].  We will continue to notify you once your loved one’s bronze has been installed.  Due to the large volume of calls and e-mails we receive, please allow for a minimum repsonse time of 24-48 hours.

Pre-planning Meetings:
Please arrange appointments in advance via phone at [781-828-7216].

Transfers are processed in the order in which they are received.

Burial Services:
We will continue to perform all scheduled burials. However, you may notice some changes in protocol to comply with state and federal directives to ensure the welfare of the families we serve and our staff. Please note that the number attending a burial is limited to 75 people (this includes the Funeral Directors and Clergy).  Anyone attending must be wearing a mask to be at the graveside or will be required to remain in their vehicle – no exceptions.  Members of the immediate family will be permitted to view the lowering of the casket from their vehicles.  We ask that all attendees depart following the committal service.
