“Beautiful Cemetery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Since I am a Historian, I planned several cemeteries in Memphis that I wanted to see while visiting on vacation. Elmwood was beautiful, clean with many awesome statues and unusual headstones. Just a 10 minute drive from Downtown. Stop in the office for a map - and check findagrave.com before you go so you don't miss anyone important that you might want to see. Very enjoyable! Thank you for keeping this cemetery so beautiful!

“Could not visit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

After seeing this location in the guidebook, finally located in a poor area of town. The gates were locked and there was a sign indicating it was a private cemetary, so did not get to see. Why list?

“Serene”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

I always love visiting cemeteries when I visit a new country or a different part of a country. Cemeteries reveal a lot about local culture. Elmwood is well kept and you can see some important names on the gravestones
