Atkinson Cemetery

AKA Lyons 

The Atkinson Cemetery is located near Bellville  just southwest of town  outside the city limits.  Go west on Austin Street, the cemetery is on the right side of the road.  There is another cemetery just before you get there which has a tall wooden cross approximately 15 feet tall. Adjacent to the east is the Catholic Cemetery. The two cemeteries share the same entrance driveway in the middle between them.

Please remember that many of the older cemeteries are located on private property. Please respect not only the cemetery but also the owner's rights. Always obtain permission to enter private property.


PLEASE CHECK the Cemetery Index page as the below table may not be complete.

To look for obits go to Bellville Public Library site and click on Newspaper as there is a wealth of information for obituaries and other records.
