Edwards Cemetery
Gardendale, Jefferson County, Alabama

Lat: 33° 41' 38"N, Lon: 86° 48' 40"W

Contributed by Robin K. Miner, Apr 24, 2006, last edited Apr 25, 2006 [rminer@bham.rr.com]. Total records = 106.

From Highway 31 N in Gardendale, drive North to the 2nd entrance of Snow Rogers Road. There is a gravel road that goes up a hill just a few yards off of Hwy 31 and Snow Rogers Road. There is a metal sign marking the cemetery, but believe me, you will miss it if you don't take the 2nd Snow Rogers Road intersection! The drive is on a curve on the left side of the road.

I do not know who owns this cemetery, but it appears to be a family cemetery. It is very well maintained, with flowers on many of the headstones. The grass is well manicured and there are no weeds. There are only a few broken stones.

I read this cemetery by physically walking therough the cemetery and writing each tombstones down. There were at least 12 Rock burial markers, which had no inscriptions.

I completed transcribing this cemetery on Apr 24, 2006. I have photos of many of the graves if someone is interested.
