Welcome to
Cedar Knoll Cemetery & Mausoleum


Cedar Knoll Cemetery is an all faith cemetery with a unique gardenlike feel. Nestled in 28 plus acres along Staples Street in East Taunton, Massachusetts, our cemetery is a perpetual record of the past. The cemetery began in the mid 1970’s by its founder George Clark. It was operated by the Clark family as the Cedar Knoll Cemetery Trust, Inc. for the past forty years.

In the fall of 2016, an independent, non-profit, Cemetery Association and Board of Trustees stepped in to administer the operation and management of the cemetery. Today, Cedar Knoll Cemetery Association, Inc. has about one third of the cemetery land developed into open spaces and four garden areas. They are the Garden of Valor, where many of our local veterans are honored and remembered, the Garden of the Cross, the Garden of Eternal Rest and the Garden of the Pines. These four sections provide in-ground grave options and memorialization for full casket or cremated remains interment.

Instead of the traditional upright monuments, bronze and granite memorials placed flush to the lawn mark the graves of those buried at Cedar Knoll Cemetery This style of memorialization helps create a peaceful, sacred, serene atmosphere and enhances the wooded surroundings. The cemetery has two key memorial features that grace our property. As you drive into the cemetery, the large wooden cross is seen in the middle of the Garden of the Cross and our Veteran Memorial Plaque and flag pole is prominent in the Garden of Valor.

Importance of Pre-Need Planning

A pre-need purchase of interment rights, whether for in-ground burial (traditional casket or cremation urn), above ground entombment (crypt) or above ground cremation (niche) allows one to make an important choice calmly, prudently and economically. Families experience a greater peace of mind knowing the burial decisions made for themselves or their loved one have been thoughtfully considered and chosen in advance. In some cases, pre-planning allows burial purchases to be made from current income, thereby conserving retirement income and savings. The pre-need purchase of interment rights avoids future spiraling expenses by locking in these fees. Pre-planning and pre-purchasing interment rights is a prudent and cost affective decision. Likewise, please consider pre-planning your funeral needs with your selected Funeral Home.
