Welcome to Woodmere Cemetery Research as we recognize 150 years of Woodmere Cemetery!

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.

July 14, 2019, marks Woodmere's 150th anniversary of providing the final resting place for over 190,000 people.  There are tours scheduled for the fall 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.
