The Dissenters Burial Ground was closed in 1937, part of it having already being built over in 1894. The gravestones were removed to the surrounding walls in the early 1960′s, but a record was maintained of their positions at that time. Many of the limestone headstones are now in a poor state and there are a number of broken stones. It was formerly known as Salem. The children’s graves are 5 feet deep. The adult graves are 6 feet deep. Burial charges were assessed at one sixth per foot. Most graves are family graves with multiple burials in each grave.
