Map of the Cemetery

There are nearly a thousand burials and memorials in the cemetery of Ware Church. Finding one relies on a system of family lot numbers and geographic sections.

The low lot numbers are along the southern border of the cemetery, starting in the southwest corner and running east.
Then numbers increase from west to east as you move from row to row, south to north. The largest numbers are in the northernmost row, near the road entrance.
