The Westerly Burial Ground (also known as Westerly Burying Ground) is an historic cemetery on Centre Street in the West Roxbury neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. Established in 1683, it is Boston's seventh-oldest cemetery, and where the first settlers of the West Roxbury area are buried. It was enlarged in 1832, and 1844, and its last documented burial was in 1962. Eight American Revolutionary War veterans are buried there as well as fifteen veterans of the American Civil War.

The cemetery was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.
