I have listed the graves by row starting from the west end of the cemetery with plots proceeding from north to south. Examples: R5-4 would be the fourth grave in from the north end of row 5. R1-3 would be the third grave in from the north end of the first row at the front of the cemetery. The rows are not very straight, so my row numbers could be off a little. You may have to do a little searching but the cemetery is small enough so you shouldn't have much trouble.

If you have family buried here and would like to have their information or additional information (Obituaries, Photos, Short Bio, Cemetery Photos)placed on our site please contact the Area Coordinator for details or visit our How To Submit page,both can be found on top of this page.

We are dedicated and strive for our records to be complete and accurate. As with all Genealogy work there comes a possibility for spelling or data errors with the information that we have received. Please let us know if you have found any such error.


Independence Cemetery is located just south of Hwy. 9 on the east side of Norman's 48th Ave. SE.
