Other_Information: This cemetery is apparently not being used for burials.
The only thing separated
ing this cemetery from another one is a neglected macadam driveway which must be used to access this cemetery(.that runs in an arch shape from the driveway from the road that is used by Greenlawn cemetery next to Gravel hill). Some say it is part of GreenLawn, but I am not sure of this. Neither Gravel Hill or GreenLawn are taken care of.
Contacted: no one
Support: not sure anyone cares about this place.
