Town Cemetery

Cemetery EntranceThe Town of Somerville owns and maintains the municipal cemetery, located off of Highway 64 on Somerville Street. The Cemetery was established c. 1829 (although the sign says 1838) and is full of history. Ownership of burial lots is restricted to residents and/or taxpayers of the Town of Somerville. A non-resident is eligible provided family connections within Fayette County, Tennessee, can be established. The Town has recently begun contracting ground maintenance out to a private contractor. The Town continues to handle all other aspects of the cemetery.

The cemetery is a cherished public space, created out of devotion, pride and remembrance. With the continued assistance of family members, visitors and historians, we can maintain an unobstructed, clean, litter-free site.
