Green Hill Cemetery is a public cemetery operated and maintained by the City of Greensboro. Inquire about who is buried where in Green Hill Cemetery, ask about current Cemetery operations and policies, etc. via The City of Greensboro Cemetery Superintendent Michael S. Moye at 336-373-2160. The City Cemetery office is located at 320 East Friendly Avenue in Greensboro. Please do not contact Friends of Green Hill Cemetery about who's buried where, or cemetery operations or cemetery policies. We are only cemetery volunteers!
Purchase our $5 Walking Tour of Green Hill Cemetery booklet, available at walking tours and from the City Cemetery office at 320 East Friendly Avenue in Greensboro. Do not ask City Cemetery staff to deliver or mail tour booklets to you.
Observe successful tombstone repairs within the old First Presbyterian Church cemetery behind the Greensboro Historical Museum. Understand that in our City of Greensboro cemeteries, the tombstones and monuments belong to the families who purchased them. The families, not the city, are responsible for repair of broken or damaged tombstones and monuments.
The U.S. government will furnish grave markers for veterans of all wars! If the veteran doesn't have a grave marker, or the marker is damaged to the point it can't be read, the veteran qualifies for a new marker. Markers and postage are free. The only expense is placing the marker, and volunteers are quite capable of placing the plaque-style markers. This information is available online at http://www.cem.va.gov/hm_hm.asp
National Tombstone Transcripton Project. A long-term nationwide project has as a goal to transcribe the words on tombstones into a web-accessible resource, helpful to those studying genealogy. Learn more about this nationwide project, and search for NC > Guilford County > Green Hill Cemetery tombstone transcriptions at http://usgwtombstones.org/ Many sections of Green Hill Cemetery tombstones have been transcribed, but there are more to do. If interested, please contact Ann Stringfield at info@FriendsOfGreenHillCemetery.org.
