REMEMBERING OUR LOVED ONE

You will find Wooster Cemetery the ideal resting place for your loved one, be it traditional in-ground burials of caskets, a mausoleum for above ground placement of caskets or ashes, Green Burials that promote a natural return of the body to the earth or the Cremation Garden that offers a scattering place for ashes allowing the family to visit and meditate.

Wooster Cemetery provides solace for the weary and grieving heart. It is quietly nestled in the midst of rolling hills, providing refuge for wildlife among the deciduous trees. Scenic and beautiful, rich in history with peaceful memories, the cemetery is comprised of 100+ acres and is in the heart of Danbury CT. Numerous memorials silently stand welcoming the walker, jogger, historian, and meditator to renew their spirits.

WOOSTER CEMETERY HISTORY

The Danbury Cemetery Association was created in November of 1850 as a result of a State law regarding cemeteries. The first officers were Frederick S. Wildman, President; Lucius P. Hoyt, Secretary; with 6 Directors:( Edgar S. Tweedy, George W. Ives laid out the design of the cemetery), Nelson L. White, S. A. Hurlburt, Henry Benedict, and Samuel C. Wildman. And so the journey began that brought us to the present cemetery of rolling hills and diverse landscapes, hosting a variety of religions and international ethnicity. It has also become a natural habitat fostering an array of animals and birds creating and ecological friendly "green area." read more...
