Contributed by Robin K. Miner, Jan 18, 2006, last edited Jan 23, 2006 [rminer@bham.rr.com]. Total records = 113.

To reach this cemetery from Gardendale AL, drive northwest on Mount Olive Rd/Hwy 77 for about 7 miles. Turn east onto Sardis Road for .9 mile. Cemetery is on right/south side of road.

The cemetery is clean and well maintained. Watch for a gravel drive going up a hill just past a wooden fenced-off, new neighborhood.

The cemetery was once in the woods, but is now surrounded by a housing development. If driving too fast, you will miss it. No signs of vandalism was seen. And no sign marking the cemetery from the road.

I walked and transcribed this cemetery on Jan 18, 2006.
