There are twenty-six burial grounds in the Town of Lyme, six of them ancient burying grounds dating from Colonial times. Headstones are searchable by family surname in links A and B. Location of cemeteries is found on link C below.
Note: The burial site and cemetery for an individual whose birth place was “Lyme” in the 17th and 18th centuries could be Lyme, but it also could be in one of the present-day towns of Old Lyme, East Lyme, East Haddam, or Salem. These towns or portions thereof were separated from the original town of Lyme between 1825 and 1855.
