The cemetery map is searchable by block number, last name, or full name (ie: "Smith, John"). Search results will appear as the name of the plot owner/purchaser. Clicking on a result will zoom the map to that plot location. Name of interred is not yet entered for all plots. Map is updated as records are added.
Actual plot locations may vary slightly from the locations as shown. This map is not intended as official guidance for grave opening or the placement of monuments. Always contact City Hall staff for marking prior to any such activity.
About the Cemetery
The Hartselle City Cemetery is located at 1100 Railroad Street NW. The online cemetery map shows plot availability, but may not reflect very recent purchases. Anyone in need of cemetery plots should call or visit City Hall to confirm plot availability and complete purchase forms.
Each individual burial plot in the cemetery is part of an eight-plot square which forms one block. The size of a cemetery block is 20'×20'. Each burial plot is 5'x10'.
The cost of one individual plot is $750. Cash, checks, and credit cards are accepted for payment. An additional transaction fee applies to credit card payments. Partial payments are not accepted.
The City of Hartselle does not handle the opening and closing duties for burial. These duties should be handled by the chosen funeral home. However, the funeral home must contact City Hall before the opening so city staff can mark the grave location and ensure accurate burial placement.
Monuments & Monument Placement
City Hall must be informed before the placement of monuments or grave markers to avoid placement errors. The City does not level settled or fallen monuments. Such leveling is the responsibility of the family, and may be accomplished by contacting a local monument company.
The Park and Recreation Department is dedicated in trying to make the final resting place of your loved one look its best by performing duties such as mowing, removing weeds, and filling in settled graves as needed. There are no yearly fees for the City Cemetery. A percentage of the monthly plot sales proceeds are appropriated to the Cemetery Perpetual Care Fund for the continual upkeep of the cemetery.
Resale or Transfer
The City of Hartselle does not facilitate the transfer of interment rights for a burial plot from the original owner to another individual. However, the City should be notified of any such transactions to ensure that the proper documents are completed and ownership records are accurate.
Please contact City Hall at 256-773-2535 for any other questions or concerns.
