About Ward Cemetery

Ward Cemetery is a historical cemetery located near Cedar Grove in Kanawha County, West Virginia. The town of Ward, West Virginia, was once a bustling coal mining community in eastern Kanawha County.  Ward was home to the employees and families of the Kellys Creek Colliery Company, later known as Valley Camp Coal Company. 

Please Donate! We Need Your Help!

The Ward Cemetery is not a perpetual care cemetery.  The cemetery is cared for by volunteers and depends on their efforts in addition to donations.  We are appealing to family, friends, and businesses for help in caring for the Ward Cemetery. Please inform family members and friends of the need for donations. We want to continue to keep the resting place of our loved ones beautiful for as long as we can, but we cannot do this without your help. Please make checks payable to Ward Cemetery and mail to:

As a result of the many years of loving care and dedication of volunteers Charles and Patsy Tucker and Lee Roy and Helen Smith, the Ward Cemetery has continued to be maintained with the help of donations.  Their work now continues through the present caretaker Sherry Smith with assistance from the Ward Cemetery Advisory Committee.  Please consider donating to the care and preservation of the Ward Cemetery.  We need your help!

We sincerely appreciate everyone's donation.  Thank you so much for your support of Ward Cemetery!
