ABOUT WARD CEMETERY

Ward Cemetery is located on Kelly's Creek Road approximately one mile northeast of Cedar Grove. The cemetery's area is approximately twelve acres and is the final resting place for nearly 3000 people. Those interred in the cemetery represent many ages, faiths, races, cultures, and nationalities, most of them brought together by common circumstances ...coal mining and life in a coal camp.

The Ward Cemetery is not a perpetual care cemetery and there are no deeded plots.  The cemetery has been cared for by volunteers for many years and depends on their efforts with the help of your donations.  After many years of loving care and dedication by caretakers such as Charles and Patsy Tucker and Lee Roy and Helen Smith and others, the Ward Cemetery still continues to be maintained thanks to the work of the present caretaker Sherry Smith and the Ward Cemetery Advisory Committee.

Ward Cemetery is an independent community cemetery and has never been connected in any way with the Ward Church of God or the Ward Reunion.
