Cemetery Location and Plot Availability

The Nantucket Jewish Cemetery is located within and to the rear of the grounds of the Edward B. Lewis Memorial Section of  Prospect Hill Cemetery on Somerset Road/ Friendship Lane in a serene, rural setting of Nantucket just beyond the outskirts of town.

Blending in with the natural surroundings of Prospect Hill, the original portion of the cemetery lies within a border of privet that serves to define it as consecrated in accordance with Jewish law, and yet to integrate it naturally with the area. Additionally, a contiguous section serves the burial needs of interfaith members of Jewish families, or for the interrment of remains of those who may prefer the option of cremation.
