Cemetery notes and/or description: NOTE: If you are making a photo request, please use the Mt. Elliott Cemetery Association web site to verify your loved one's burial prior to making the photo request. Around January 1, 2011, Mt. Elliott revamped its web site and added a genealogy tab where people can go to find out whether their ancestors are buried in any of the cemeteries of the Mt. Elliott Cemetery Association -- Guardian Angel Cemetery, All Saints Cemetery, Resurrection Cemetery, Mt. Olivet Cemetery and Mt. Elliott Cemetery. It's a great resource tool and the only field that's required is a last name.
While the online genealogy database of burials is a good place to start, many burials are known to be missing or are filed under incorrect dates or misspelled names. If your ancestor isn't showing up, you can also send a message to the Association and they will try to find your relative for you.
As of January 1, 2012 all inquires and transactions will be conducted at: Mt. Olivet Cemetery, 17100 Van Dyke Ave., Detroit, MI 48234 (313) 365-5650. The office at Mt. Elliott Cemetery will only be open by appointment. Interment locations can be found by accessing our website or calling Mt. Olivet.
