From Raleigh, drive north on US1 (Capitol Blvd) to Wake Forest. After crossing NC 98, drive about 1 mile to the stop light at Purnell Road. Turn left on Purnell and drive 1.5 miles to Bud Smith Road. Turn right on Bud Smith and drive about 1 mile to Woodland Church Road. Turn left onto Woodland Church Road, the cemetery is about .1 mile on the left side of the road before reaching Camp Kanata Road.
This cemetery is on Woodland Church Road in northern Wake County almost on the Granville County line.
This cemetery is on the edge of the road in a field, and no longer in use but cared for. Looking on down Woodland Church road, from the cemetery, you can see the Granville County sign on the far side of the intersection with Camp Kanata Road, and across from the intersection is Woodland Baptist Church. The path next to the cemetery leads to the old Allen farm house which is no longer lived in.
In addition to the graves listed below, there is one grave marked with a stone.
I surveyed this cemetery in Apr 04, 2004.
