Crown Hill Cemetery – Tombstone Tuesdays October 13, 2020

I mentioned the 7 largest cemeteries on a previous Tombstone Tuesdays – The 7 Largest Cemeteries in the World — BillionGraves Blog – Tombstone Tuesdays June 16, 2020, and this week I am focusing on the tenth largest cemetery; on some websites, the tenth largest cemetery is Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery – Tombstone Tuesdays August 4, 2020 (it’s third in the earlier post) and on other sites it’s Crown Hill Cemetery. I think different sites go with land area or permanent residents in determining which is the largest. I chose Crown Hill Cemetery: https://www.dignitymemorial.com/funeral-homes/indianapolis-in/crown-hill-funeral-home-mgmt-co/8366 as this week’s Tombstone Tuesdays. It is the third or fourth largest cemetery in the U. S. that isn’t a military or V. A. cemetery. I would check with the cemetery before scheduling a visit as COVID-19 restrictions may be in place.  Also, the Crown Hill National Cemetery is located within the Crown Hill Cemeteryhttps://www.cem.va.gov/cems/nchp/crownhill.asp.
