Please delete: empty, wrong name

The correctly named cemetery is here:
Please add 3 AKAs: Saint Ann's Garrison Cemetery / Needham's Point Cemetery / Gravesend Military Cemetery

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Please delete: empty, wrong location, misspelled

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Please delete: empty, was an inadvertent misspelled dupe

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Please rename: [expand St to Saint, remove St Michael]
St. Barnabas Churchyard, St. Michael

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Please rename: s/be Saint Philip-the-Less Chapelyard
Current name: Boscobel (St. Philip the Less) Chapelyard, St. Pet

change location: Boscobel, St Peter Parish
add map: N 13.28667 W 59.58002
note: Map coordinates may be off by a bit (I can't get into the satellite image 'deep' enough to be sure this is the precise location); however the village of Boscobel is at this road junction and - at least for Barbados - it's better than no map at all wink. Plus it's certainly _not_ in Speightstown, which is on the opposite coast of the island, and even a generalized map would be helpful to visitors.

Many thanks laugh

Please change the city location for the New Johnson Cemetery in Monroe County, Alabama. The city is incorrectly listed as Uriah, Al. New Johnson Cemetery is actually located 5 miles north of Uriah, in Goodway, Al.
The URL for the cemetery page is;CScnty=75&
The zip code for Goodway is 36449.
Also, please add the following info to the Cemetery Notes/Directions: The cemetery is located at the intersection of Hickory Hollow Road and Johnson Road.
Thank you

Two Find A Grave photographers have told me that this cemetery is in Marion Co, FL Instead of Citrus Co. Please change to Marion Co.

“Cedar Grove Cemetery, Marion County, FL off of St Rd 200” according to the photographer who submitted the photos for the profile page…..caption under photo.

Located in Southern Marion Co, the Cedar Grove Cemetery is approximately 1 mile north of the Withlacoochee River off State Road 200 and down a dirt road to the east of 200 about 1 1/2 miles.
