Cedar Grove Cemetery

New London, Connecticut

When I was working on my grandmother's genealogy, I found that many of them were buried in the mid-1800s at Cedar Grove Cemetery in New London.  The administrative office there at the entrance of the cemetary has records going very far back.  I found relatives I didn't even know existed until I saw them on the plot cards.  They were buried next to relatives I was inquiring about, but didn't have names on their gravestones.  Even the cause of death, date of death, and date of burial is on the plot card.

Also, the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War have extensive records of Civil War veterans at Cedar Grove.  I believe the fellow that completed the records is Alexander Prentice.  I don't know him personally, but I ran into him in the New London Library Archives a few years ago and he obtained a copy of my ancestor's record and at the bottom it states that he himself, Alexander Prentice, filled out the form in January of 1997.  There is information on section and plot number within Cedar Grove and information on my ancestor's military history.
