Administrative history

The Willow Bank Cemetery was incorporated 10 April, 1880. The cemetery consisted of 9 acres of land donated by John W. Barss, Warden of the County of Kings, for use as a public burying ground. The Corporation consisted of 12 trustees, and lot holders (anyone owning a lot of 100 square feet or more). Business was conducted primarily by 4 officers: President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. It was the Secretary’s duty to records the minutes of meetings, maintain a book of all lots sales, a book of receipts and expenditures, and a book of interments (which included name, age, residence, occupation and lot number of person being buried).
