Welcome to the Langsford Cemetery, a former hay field overlooking the bay.
Langsford Cemetery 32-34 Langsford Street Gloucester, Massachusetts 01930
The residents of Lanesville were farmers, fishermen, traders, teachers, postmen, seamstresses, artists, sculptors, coachmen, and quarrymen. Our streets were named for them, and their stories tell about their connection to the sea and granite; both shaped their lives and deaths.
There are about 320 graves here. They memorialize our ancestors, some of the family members of those interred in Cove Hill and Seaside Cemeteries. They are the history of Lanesville.
Veterans from the War of 1812, the Civil War, World War 2, Korea, and Vietnam are honored here.
Please Note: If you visit, the cemetery is not handicapped accessible, and the terrain is uneven with a steep grade.
As a participant of the cemetery tour, you agree to waive, release and hold harmless the City of Gloucester from any and all claims, damages, and causes of action arising out of your participation in the cemetery tour given by the City of Gloucester or taken as a self-guided tour.
