Cemeteries

Several of the cemeteries in Halifax have more than one name.  For consistancey - each of the cemeteries will be listed under the name it has been given by the Vermont Old Cemetery Association (VOCA).  If a cemetery is known by any other name it be noted.

Bascom Cemetery - south side of Collins Road on old trail


Halifax Center Cemetery - on the north side of Jacksonville Stage Road


Hall Cemetery - off Tony Hanson Road on private drive

Hatch Road Cemetery - Hatch School Road. Also known as Hatch Cemetery[1]

Prouty Cemetery - on Thomas Hill Road, north side, across the road from the Thomas Hill Cemetery

Stafford Cemetery - not located on a main road but in the woods off of a "legal town trail." Access is best from Jacksonville Stage Road turning onto Josh Road, a small, one lane, rutted, dirt road.

Taylor-Stacy Cemetery - near the junction of Hatch School Road and Butterfield Road. Also known as Taylor Cemetery,[1] and Stacy Cemetery.[2]

Thomas Hill Cemetery - on Thomas Hill Road, south side, across the road from the Prouty Cemetery. Also known as Stanclift Cemetery.[1]

Thomas Hill-Bell-Phelps Cemetery - on Thomas Hill Road, near the intersection of Thomas Hill Road and Hale Road. Also known as Thomas Cemetery,[1] and Phelps-Bell Cemetery.[2]

West Halifax Cemetery - at the north end of West Halifax Village, at the end of a short dirt road, behind some homes


BEWARE: If using Vermont Vital Records, 1760-1954 found on Familly Search to determine the place of burial - this resource uses Bell to refer to both Bell Cemetery and Thomas Hill-Bell-Phelps Cemetery. Using the 1953 cemetery transcriptions done by Ruby Austin will help clarify the proper cemetery - although personal visits by those contrubuting to Find A Grave have provided further clarity if a personal visit was made to obtain a picture of the tombstone.
