Cemeteries

One of my favorite things to do in a new city is visit the famous graves… Unfortunately, there are not many famous graves in Arizona (unless you’re into cowboys). 😛 However, this page will list resources for the cemeteries that we do have.

Cemeteries in Maricopa County – This is a very complete list, and it includes links for additional information.

Greenwood Memory Lawn Cemetery – Established in 1906. It is the oldest cemetery in Phoenix that is still open. And with cemeteries, I say “the older the better”.

FindaGrave.com is an awesome site that I use anytime I travel to a new city. It has a search for celebrity graves by location, clame to fame, level of fame, etc. As I mentioned before, the listings in Phoenix are not very interesting. Nonetheless, it is here for your reference.
