REMEMBERING OUR LOVED ONE

Scenic and beautiful, rich in history with peaceful memories, Wooster Cemetery is comprised of 100+ acres and is located in the heart of Danbury CT. Numerous monuments and memorials silently stand welcoming the walker, jogger and meditator to renew their spirits. Green burials promote natural burials returning the body to mother earth. The Cremation Garden gives a scattering place of ashes allowing the family to visit and meditate.

Thank You

We would like to thank Christine Miller from Broadview Middle School for putting together a team of students and teachers to replace all of the worn out flags in the cemetery in honor of Memorial Day 2015. The group of 150 students and several teachers walked the cemetery on Thursday, May 21st, placed and replaced flags on the veterans' graves and we sincerely appreciate their time and effort. Thank you to all the students and teachers who participated in this yearly ritual and thank you to all the veterans who serve and have served to keep our country free and safe.

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...
