From the intersection of Green Level Church Rd.(SR 1600) and Yates Store Rd.(SR 1716), in White Oak Twp., Wake Co., take Yates Store Rd. north for 9/10 mi., to Yates Store. Continue to the "Y" in the road and bear right, continuing on Yates Store Rd. There is currently a partial barrier due to construction on this road. Bypass the barrier and continue about 100 feet and keep a sharp look out for a logging trail on the left side of the road. There is a little stick barring this trail which can be skirted by automobile or on foot. You can drive in, carefully. About 1/10 mile down the logging trail, on the left side of the road about 100 feet into the woods is the cemetery.
There is extensive development under way all around the cemetery which is currently surrounded by pine forest. Unlike Batchelor Yates Cemetery, which is nearby, this cemetery is not shown on maps of Wake County nor is it maintained. It is an abandoned cemetery.
