Andover Church and Cemetery Guide
At this time, the links below will bring you to the private web sites of the churches of Andover. The information below the links listed will educate you as to the age of the cemeteries and the locations of the records for each. I am in the process of obtaining cemetery records and photographs for the cemeteries of Andover and North Andover. If you have any information to share, or have any questions, feel free to email me.
*** If you are interested in the gravestones for the earlier settlers and residents of Andover, here are partial photo projects including the 1600 Burying Ground and the Second Burying Ground Cemetery, both of which are located in North Andover.
