Elm Grove Cemetery is a must-see when you go to Mystic CT. The grounds are well-maintained and the Supervisor is a nice guy. They take pride in what they do for the families who have lost a loved one and for those who might not have a family to make the decision on their final resting place. Thank you too all who make Elm Grove a peaceful place to be!
