KN0LLW00D CEMETERY,

IN CANTON AND SHARON, MASSACHUSETTS.



AN IDEAL PLACE.



BEAUTIFUL TOPOCRAPHY.



PERFECT IN GEOLOGICAL FORMATION.



It must and will be the best and most beautiful Cemetery in
Eastern Massachusetts.




KNOLLWOOD," PRIVATE STATION.
THIS is a modern " Lawn Cemetery," and the fact of its being located on the main line of the New York. New Haven
* & Hartford Railroad makes it easily accessible to the suburbanites, giving them all. and many more advantages
than the large city cemeteries offer.

We now have several acres prepared, and are offering lots of all sizes in choice sections for less than one quarter
the price demanded by other modern cemeteries. We also wish to call especial attention to the fact that all our deeds
have the " perpetual care " clause, and our patrons can rest assured that their lots will be kept in good order for all
time at no expense or care to themselves.

Our private station is fitted up with every convenience, having a ladies' waiting room and toilet, general waiting
room, gents' toilet, office, etc., and the advantages it affords are at the free use of lot proprietors and visitors.

The general waiting room is sufficiently large to admit of its being used as a chapel for funeral services, and
arrangements for its use can be made with the Comptroller.

Courteous and willing attendants are always at our private station to give full information to lot proprietors and
visitors. Carriages are also at our station, and are at the disposal of lot proprietors and lot viewers for the purpose
of going over and inspecting the property.

Further information will be cheerfully furnished, either at the City Office, 231 Tremont Building, or at the ground.
