Welcome to the website of Bridgetown Cemetery.  We celebrated 150 years of service to Green Township, Cheviot, and the Western Hills areas of Cincinnati in 2014.  It is our hope that you will find everything you need located here.  For further information, please contact the Cemetery office at 513-574-0360

***Spring Cleanup***
Beginning March 1st, our grounds crew will begin grounds cleanup for the new growing season.   If there are any flowers, wreaths, or other decorations from Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentines Day, or other earlier holidays these will be collected and discarded.  Please remove any of these decorations by March 1st.   As a courtesy, if you call the administration office at 513-574-0360 you can arrange for them to collect your belongings and hold them for you until you can come to the office to pick up your decorations.  Thanks for your your help in our efforts to keep the cemetery looking good for the new growing season.
***Weather Notice***
Please be aware that our roads may become snow covered and icy during the winter months.  If this happens, please do not risk an accident as we have several hills that can become quite treacherous during bad winter weather very quickly.  While our groundskeeper does plow our roadways, blowing snow, refreezing water, and overnight snow can create hazardous conditions quickly.  Please refrain from using cemetery roads if they appear snow covered.  Thanks for your help!

150th Anniversary Dedication
On June 21st, 2014, Bridgetown Cemetery hosted a ceremony marking the 150th Anniversary of the establishment of the cemetery, the refurbishing of our historic receiving vault, and commemorated the memories of the over 30 Civil War veterans buried in the grounds with a 21 gun salute and the playing of taps.  The guests included local and state politicians, community members, Boy Scouts, Green Township and Westwood Historical Society members, and the Green Township VFW Post 10380.  Guests also brought items to be placed in a time capsule which will be buried next to the receiving vault and will be opened in 2064, the Bicentennial of the cemetery.  We hope you enjoy the pictures posted below.
