Pictures - Cemetery Cool Caches

121 posts in this topic

I love exploring old cemeteries, and geocaching has taken me to hundreds of them in the past few years. Here's one of the most impressive monuments I've visited. It's located in Lake View Cemetery in East Cleveland, and is known as the Hazerot Angel or the Angel of Death Victorious.

There's a cache associated with the monument, of course. Another must-see in the cemetery is the Wade Chapel, with Tiffany murals and stained glass window, No cache near there, sadly.

Here are a few of mine, quick dirty uploads with little or no editing other than resizing so I didn't have to wait till next month for them to finish uploading.

Cemetery Caches are one of my favorites as long as they are done respectfully.

My favorite cache sites are cemeteries, ghost towns and old homesteads. I live about 20 miles from Riverside Washington in an area known as The Tunk Valley. In Riverside there is a very nice cemetery with a grave that's located 500 feet outside the cemetery. It's the grave of Frank Watkins, Riversides only murder victim. Frank was a horse thief and his headstone reads "He just had too many horses in his corral." The people of Riverside didn't want him in the same cemetery with their good kin so they buried him 500 feet outside the cemetery.

We were caching near an old homestead one time when we came across what appeared to be the grave of a child. The little stuffed bear had been attached to the cross for quite some time and probably (because of the harsh winters and hot, hot summers) won't be there much longer. There was no name or date on the cross but it obviously been there for a long time.

Cemeteries are my thing. Most of my caches are long forgotten cemeteries in my home county (Decatur County, IN) in which I point out a number of headstones. One is Patrick Cemetery (GC4QPTA and GC4QPVP). Located in the cemetery is a stone that has long since been swallowed up by a tree.

On my to-do list is a really neat puzzle cache that incorporates an encrypted grave marker:

 

GCHM4W - The Talented Mr. Bean

 

Here's a good picture from the gallery, showing both the original and replacement stones:

A very interesting thread! This is a mausoleum built in 1902 for the family of a rich land owner. Several coffins can be placed in there. The right to use it for this family has now expired, and if one is interested (and has the necessary cash) they can buy the right to use the mausoleum for soandso many years. This is at a large cemetery in Kiel, Germany. Larger old cemeteries here are like parks with many trees, and people go there for taking a walk. There's a multi cache with QTA-stages, and the final is in a remote part of the cemetery where there are no graves.

No, except that it was at a child's grave.

When caching in cemeteries I like to look at the figurines people leave for their loved ones. Dogs are especially interesting to me.

This thread has been "buried" for 3 years so I thought I would attempt to resurrect it. Mrs Roc and I have seen many unique and historical headstones while caching. I hope that many of you have also.Please share them with all of us. These first few were taken in Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati. One of the largest and most beautiful cemeteries in the the U.S.  The last one is a private mausoleum for the Dexter family. Its larger than some churches I've seen.

These are taken in Cyprus on our honeymoon. We went to a tour with my wife that took us to war graves and Sn Barnabas Church. Amazing places for sure. I am planning to take another trip to the island soon as it was a breathtaking holiday spot. I strongly recommend everyone to see and visit Cyrpus.
