From the intersection of Rtes 3 and 20 in Locust Grove (Wilderness
Center), drive 2.5 miles east on Rte. 3 (Plank Rd; Germanna Highway).
Laurel Hill Memorial Park is on your left on the westbound side
of Route 3.
This cemetery was established in 1980 and has a mausoleum and
funeral home on the property that opened in 2000. The property
is well maintained, overlooking a small lake and grassy hills.
The historic grounds were the site of the battle of Laurel Hill
during the Civil War, and are adjacent to Chancellorsville Battlefield
Park. There are many military veterans buried here due to proximity
to Washington, DC, and one Union soldier, Amos Sparks, is buried
here in an unmarked location.

I walked the grounds and recorded all legible inscriptions on
the headstones and plaques: (Note: Since a large number of stones,
plaques and plots are prepurchased through the funeral home, single
and duel headstones/plaques with no date of death provided have
been excluded from this listing where status cannot be determined
This is all existing and legible stones and markers, from when
I visited it on May 8-19, 2011.
