All cemeteries – Letter C

logofinalbrownThis Chicago and Cook County Cemetery list is a thumbnail reference of the cemeteries and burial grounds within the present boundaries of Cook County. Unlike other cemetery sources and lists, this site will include those cemeteries that are endangered, abandoned, or have vanished. In addition there are many cross references to cemeteries that have been known under more than one name.

All of these cemeteries  will eventually  appear in greater detail as blog posts where you will find historical information and much more.

Cemeteries that have already appeared in posts contain a link  which will take you directly to the relevant blog post.
