The Brooks Memorial Library in Brattleboro has a card index of inscriptions for many of the cemeteries. This can be helpful in research, but it is incomplete and sometimes the cards are inaccurate.

A book of these inscriptions taken from the cards located in the Brooks Memorial Libary called "Some Cemeteries of Brattleboro, Windham Co., Vermont," has been published by Alison Gene Franks (1997). This book includes partial listings for the Carpenter Cemetery, Meeting House Hill Cemetery, Old Brattleboro Village Cemetery (West Brattleboro or Steadman), Prospect Hill Cemetety, Ward-Robinson Cemetery (Mixer Cemetery), and the West Brattleboro Cemetery (Richardson Cemetery). Entries have not been verified.
