|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The CEDAR HILL CEMETERY is located on the southern boundary of Chisago County, northeast of the city of Forest Lake (that city is located within Washington County, MN).
This cemetery is found when you start at the intersection of Highway 61 (Forest Blvd) and North Shore Drive in Forest Lake, MN. The Mattson Funeral Home is one landmark at this intersection. Travel north on North Shore Drive about 1.8 miles to Heath Avenue North. Turn left onto Heath Avenue (a dirt road) and continue ahead about 1,000 feet until you see the gates for the cemetery on your left. Turn left and continue ahead through the wooded area until you reach the cemetery. (There is no cemetery access via Hawthorne Avenue, as it is a cul-de-sac / dead end street.)
The original plat of this cemetery was registered on the 10th of November, 1926 by the First Presbyterian Church of Forest Lake, MN. This section lies in the west-most area furthest from the flagpole seen in the east-most area. This part of the cemetery contains 9 sections of varying numbers of graves per section.
The cemetery was expanded eastward when a second plat map was registered on the 11th of September, 2000 by the Forest Lake Christian Church. The new area contains 18 sections of varying numbers of graves per section.
This entire cemetery was photographed and memorials were created from the visual records. The photographs were then uploaded to each page. A cross check of existing transcription records helped to ensure accuracy.
In addition, the Minnesota Birth and Death Indexes were searched and compared to each interment record. Birth and/or death records were posted on each memorial when they were found.
The Find-A-Grave system was expanded to allow linking of burials into family relationship groups. This feature was added after the initial memorials had been created and audited. Links will be added as time permits.
