Willows Catholic Cemetery

Willows Cemetery
this cemetery is the same and should only be listed as the Willows Cemetery, a findagrave volunteer entered all the names on your sight both Catholic Section and Regular section that was great, then another volunteer reentered all the interred in the Catholic Section again, this has caused many many duplicate memorials, example type in just the last name Hoever, Billiou, Cecil and there is a listing for both the Catholic Section and then again in the regular section. The reentering of all interred in the Catholic section has caused many many duplicates. This Cemetery is only one Cemetery and should not be listed as The Willows Catholic Cemetery, after calling the cemetery they advised the name both Catholic and non catholic is called The Willows Cemetery District address for the cemetery is 800 E Wood St,Willows, CA 95988
(530) 934-7331
Hope we can merge these cemeteries to get rid of the duplicate name memorials

This cemetery need to be deleted. It is already listed as Dalston United Cemetery. (Though the sign states Dalston Union Cemetery)

Union Cemetery has no entries.
Union Cemetery Delete

Thank You.

Center Grove Cemetery
On Center Grove Road, approximately 2 miles east of Charlotte, AR
Find A Grave Listing #1

Find A Grave Listing #2

35.81291 North, -91.40280 West

There are two listings on Find A Grave for the same cemetery. Both use the same name, Center Grove Cemetery. However, one is listed at Charlotte, AR and the other is listed at Dota, AR. The actual cemetery isn't affiliated with one place or another, although it's one mile closer to Charlotte than it is to Dota.

Would like to see these cemeteries merged to consolidate duplicate grave entries into one location.

Please rename "Corwin Property Cemetery" by removing Cortner from the name; it's in the location by removing the road from the name; it's in the location by removing the road from the name; it's in the location by removing the location from the name by moving "Cemetery destroyed, located at approximately 1906 Knob Creek Road" to the notes; there is a map by renaming the other assigned name; "Mount Hermon Cemetery Old

Please add "Cemetery" to the name

Wilhoite-Whitesell Cemetery

The cemetery photo on the above webpage is not appearing on all the memorials as usual,
so could you please adjust that.

Because of this, someone has added the same 2 photographs on to a bunch of the memorials,
such as this example ...

Also please look at this memorial to see if that info should be moved to the cemetery page ...
