This cemetery was surveyed by Lawrence and Sue Dale on 31 Jan 1997. We revisited this cemetery on 21 May 2000 and did a spot check for recent burials. As time has passed we are discouraged as the cemetery is again becoming more and more unkempt. This as of 21 Dec 2003 when we visited to take the GPS Coordinates. We also did a re-walk of the cemetery adding new burials and noting marker changes. As of 31 Dec 2004 this cemetery had 199 documented burials.
