Bartlett-Ellendale Cemetery
Shelby County, Tennessee

Lat: 37°13'41N, Lon: 89°49'41W

Contributed by Julie Sefton, Mar 07, 2001 [jsefton1@midsouth.rr.com]. Total records = 797.

In Bartlett take Oak Road north (left) from Summer Ave. (Hwy. 70), turn left at the Fullview Missionary Church (onto the dead end section of Memphis Arlington Road) and you will see two cemeteries on your left. The first cemetery is a “black” cemetery (from the days when blacks and whites were not buried in the same cemetery) and the second is Bartlett-Ellendale (with the black iron fence).

This cemetery was formerly known as Pisgah Cemetery and/or Warren Chapel-Pisgah Cemetery. The name was changed in 1975.

This transcription was initially undertaken as an Eagle Scout project. The database was gathered by walking the cemetery numerous times and transcribing the information from the headstones. A map of the cemetery can be seen at the right.

Since the initial effort several years ago, I have developed (and continue to update) the web pages and, with the assistance of Harris Clark, have expanded the transcription to close to 800 visible graves. There are some others but they are nearly impossible to read due to age and weather. There are very limited and incomplete paper records that have not been accessed at this point (located at Bartlett United Methodist Church) Contact for burial space: Dr. David C. Lewis, Executive Minister, Bartlett United Methodist Church – dclewis@bartlettumc.org

There is limited additional information available on the early settlers buried in this cemetery through the Bartlett Historical Society at 2969 Court St, Bartlett, TN 38134 (901) 373-8433

Transcription last updated Feb 16, 2002. For further information you can visit my website.
