How many people are buried here? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.75.39.42 (talk) 19:59, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

There are many other sculptures such as the vanness parson pyramid and the sarcophagus tomb. There should be more facts about these sculptures and why they were built in the cemetery.
You should add more famous people and why and when they were buried here. Maybe a description about the famous person's life and how they died and why they choose to be buried here by their loved ones. What does green wood cementery symbolize? ---- — Preceding unsigned comment added by Joycewupolsc110 (talkcontribs) 18:47, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
Good idea. I am chronically too busy with pictures, coaching at edit-a-thons, and various other activities but indeed someone ought to find and insert such information with appropriate WP:Referencees. Last year the cemetery apparently showed interest in an event where people would go there to use their books and records, with technical coaching from old timer editors like me. It didn't happen, but surely there must be records available somewhere for interested editors to use. Jim.henderson (talk) 00:45, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Front gate complex picture[edit]

August picture

Several weeks ago I snapped this picture and like it better than the existing head picture. However, I hesitate to paste mine in, lest it show that my judgment is clouded by pride. Other opinions? Jim.henderson (talk) 00:45, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
