Directions: Take Hwy 129 north in Gilchrist Co. Go four miles out of Bell to the flashing light at Hwy.129 and Hwy 340. Turn left onto Hwy 340. Go two miles to the first hard road to the right, which is 55th Ave (was called Townsend Cemetery Road, several years ago). Go another mile and the cemetery is on the left just before the pavement ends.

This cemetery is well taken care of and is completely chained fenced in. Stones are readable. The first Saturday of each month the residents of Gilchrist Co. get together and clean the cemetery. Townsend Cemetery is still active. Many Townsend families live here in Gilchrist County.

cemetery records

A free online library of cemetery records from thousands of cemeteries across the world, for historical and genealogy research.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
