The North Bloomfield Cemetery is a beautiful and accessible public cemetery with a mix of Victorian and modern lots in a rural setting. It is the epitome of a quiet, personal space that is entirely maintained by lot owners and volunteers.
The cemetery is a pre-Victorian-age cemetery established in 1804, about 34 years before Mt. Hope Cemetery in Rochester, NY. It is the final resting spot of more than 130+ veterans from all wars—from the French and Indian War to the Gulf War. Like many rural cemeteries, it is not owned by a town or village. The North Bloomfield Cemetery is operated entirely by volunteers and without any town or state monies.
Memorial Day Parade
The North Bloomfield Cemetery hosts the earliest morning Memorial Day Parade in Monroe County every year and includes a reading of all 130+ veterans interred here. The parade begins at 8:30am on the corner of Route 65 and Quaker Meeting House Road, proceeds to the cemetery for the military salute and ceremony, then goes to the North Bloomfield Chapel for refreshments.
Volunteers and Donations
As a not-for-profit organization, we appreciate and welcome assistance from donations, as well as help during our biannual spring and fall cleanup. Light yard work from all age groups happens from 9 AM to noon on posted dates. If you are a group that needs to fulfill community service hours, we will gladly accept your help. If you are interested in making a tax-deductible donation to the cemetery, please email our board.
The North Bloomfield Cemetery operates under the direction of a volunteer Board of Trustees. The only expenses are for maintenance and upkeep of the grounds. All plot owners are welcome and encouraged to attend annual meetings to stay informed, and to help with biannual cleanup of the grounds.
