Cemeteries of Glynn County
Bwk. Memorial Park
Evergreen Mem. Park
The Glynn County cemeteries were compiled from a list of cemeteries that I have in my collection of data. I did not compile this list, it was made several years ago, and some of these cemeteries may no longer be in existence.
Also, the names of the cemeteries, may not be what you or your ancestor's named it either. I have changed some of the cemetery names, when possible, to reflect what the descendants or history, has called them, many I have named according to what burial records or funeral homes have named them.
Photos of tombstones have been linked to each individual listing on most of the cemeteries. Some are overall plot photos, I have close-ups of each stone available upon request without copyright information printed on them.
Cemetery plot maps are being uploaded for some, not all, cemeteries. A few of these cemeteries only had a few graves, in a straight row, so a plot map is not necessary.
Glynn County GIS is working on creating virtual tours of our local cemeteries and they've already completed several, please be sure to visit their site as they have mapped a few of the cemeteries I have never been granted access.

In my personal collection I also have select funeral home records, which give more information on the families that are buried in Glynn County, and other areas.
Many folks that lived here were buried in the surrounding counties of Brantley, Wayne, McIntosh, Camden, and even in Ware. Most people do not realize that Brantley County was formed in 1921, so the families that were once living in Wayne County before 1921, were located in Brantley County after 1921 even though they never moved.
Thanks to the efforts of Ruth Vicent, many burials for the surrounding counties have been compiled in one database, that she has given me for lookup use, and eventually we will be adding to all of my listings. One day, this may be available online for researchers, but permission must be obtained by other compilers before this is done.
Thanks to the efforts of Walter Ken Sylvester (deceased) of Ware County, the Glynn County Genealogy & History website now has a listing of all known Brantley County Cemeteries!
Unfortunately, all of the Wayne County, Georgia volunteer genealogy sites are no longer online. There were a few with great information and one with an amazing cemetery resource; however, I can no longer find them online.
