At the 2016 meeting a new map of the cemetery was presented.  Glenn Whitaker worked with a company to mark the rows of burials with stainless steel markers, then document all the existing gravesites both in maps and in database format.   This was a HUGE project and is much appreciated!  Links to electronic images of these documents are shown below. 

The annual meeting of the Grove Hill Cemetery Association will be held on Sunday, June 24, 2018 at 1pm at the Grove Hill Church.  Please come and tour the new building!   If you can't attend in person, please consider sending a donation to:  PO Box 564, Leonard TX  75452

Requirements for plot reservation


Interested parties should contact Glenn Whitaker to confirm eligibility for burial, and that the spot you want is available.  Glenn maintains the master list of interments at Grove Hill.
