Byron Cemetery

The Byron Cemetery will be removing all grave decorations during Spring Cleaning.  If there are any decorations that would like to keep please remove them and then bring them back after cleanup is complete.  This is done each year to keep the cemetery looking good.  After April 15 decorating can be resumed.  We remind you to not use glass receptacles - if found they will be discarded.  Easter decorations will be allowed up until May 2 after which they will be removed and discarded.   

Mike Lewis is the Sexton and Josiah Henson is currently training to take Mike's place soon, who will meet with those who request information on where their loved ones are, inquire on availability of grave spaces and sell spaces that are available, record keeping and reporting to the Byron Township Board of Trustees.  As we move forward there will be more information here including fee schedules and links to cemetery maps.
