The Cemetery is maintained by the City of Norton. The City still has a few plots available for purchase.
oldest section of the Western Star Cemetery has been closed to burials since
1959. In that section, there are some very old graves of veteran soldiers from
the Wars of 1776, 1812, World Wars I and II. The earliest known burial is of
Seth Lucas, who died on Sept 5, 1815 at the age of 49 years.
In September, 1987, surveying and plotting of the northern section of the cemetery was completed by registered surveyors. This section was divided into standard lot sections of 90 lots, with 3-4 graves per lot. An infant section was created with 40 graves and a cremations section with 64 graves. These lots and grave plots are available for purchase and burial purposes, per City ordinance, which sets the fees.
