Welcome to Woodmere Cemetery Research

Another 4-hour tour is scheduled for Saturday, October 13.  This includes a box lunch, a book, handouts, and prizes.  These tours fill up quickly so please get your registration in early. 

For those of you who have just discovered this website, welcome!   And for those of you who are returning, make sure you visit the different links for information that may be of interest to you.  I am adding resources which I think will help with your Michigan research. 

This website does not belong to Woodmere Cemetery, but the owners allowed me to create my own website and database to assist those doing family research.  If you need to inquire about purchasing graves, headstones, etc., you must contact Woodmere Cemetery.

On July 14, 2017, Woodmere Cemetery celebrated its 148th anniversary and has over 190,000 people who have made Woodmere Cemetery their final resting place.  There are tours and presentations in the works so check the events column and link.  If you are interested in having a tour and the dates of the scheduled tours do not work for you, let me know and I can arrange one for you.

Please note that this website's purpose is to assist those finding their loved ones buried at Woodmere Cemetery. Cemetery records may contain a plethora of information that may assist one in furthering their research.   This is not intended for Find-A-Grave users or any other related website.

Best wishes in your family search.
