Great Lakes Naval Base Burial Grounds
North Chicago, Lake County, Illinois

Great Lakes Naval Base
North Chicago IL 60088

Contributed by Gary F. Holcomb, Sr., Apr 17, 2000, last edited Jun 01, 2006 [eaglegh48@comcast.net]. Total records = 167.

This burial site is on the Naval Base and permission would need to be granted at the proper place to visit it.

This burial ground was used from about 1917 to 1957, judging from the listings. There may be other burials without a record, but this is as complete as I was able to find.

I accepted the challenge of restoring this cemetery, which too me from 1975 to 1979, after it had been forgotten for 30 years. I have the pictures before, during and after all of the repairs.

The burial site is owned and maintained by an appointed staff of the Great Lakes Naval Base in North Chicago IL.
