Norwell Cemetery Committee
Many of Norwell’s well-known families are buried here including the Merritts, Tildens and Turners. Also, other notable people including author John Cheever and Madame Cushing (the widow of the first Chief Justice of Massachusetts who designed the original state seal). There is also a special lot where the ministers of First Parish Church are buried. This cemetery is still open for cremation burials.
