What Can I do?

You need no special skills to lend a hand.  We all are learning on-the-job how to reset fallen stones, properly clean and care for gravestones, learn something about South Dedham's (Norwood) earliest inhabitants, and map the cemetery for town history, genealogical research and family memorials.
