Willow Lawn Cemetery
Burial List of Willow Lawn Cemetery
Lake Wales, Polk County, Florida

Willow Lawn Cemetery is an African-American Cemetery located in Lake Wales, Florida.
 It is still an active cemetery.  One section of the cemetery dates back to the 1920s and 1930s.
  However, records were not kept until about the 1940s or 1950s. 
This list was compiled primarily from an interment book kept by the City of Lake Wales, Florida.
  The interment book was handwritten and therefore some names and dates were hard to read and decipher.
Please note that not all pages were transcribed and most names beginning with the letters 
J, L, M, Mc, P, R, S, T and W are not included in this list. 
Please also note that most of the dates listed (in the far right column) are the date
of INTERMENT or burial.  If known, the date of death was provided.
