Many thanks to contributor Bob Hague for initially setting up this memorial, for the photos of the gravestones, and for the additional information (very detailed and very helpful) about the section of the cemetery where Raymond's grave is located. The following is from one of his communiques, posted here with his permission.
"When I first posted this memorial I took the burial plot information from the Glenwood Cemetery (they manage Washington Cemetery too) burial index. The area where Raymond Batchelor's grave is located is know as Strangers Rest. Most of the graves in that section only have a numbered marker with no name. There are only a handful of family lots in this section. Most graves are individual graves. Washington Cemetery has set up a grid system in this area to help locate graves. The cemetery now call this section R. I have referred to this section as Plot R to differ it from the other sections that have lots."

May songs of the angels welcome you and guide you along your way. May the smiles of the martyrs greet your own as darkness turns into day. Every fear will be undone and death will be no more, as songs of the angels bring you home before the face of God.|
