Taylor Family Cemetery

The historic Taylor Family Cemetery is located at the 21000 block of Glendale Avenue, Lemoore, California and consists of three rows of monuments.

Taylor Cemetery was a private family cemetery until recently. Lemoore Cemetery District now has the responsibility for the care of the one-acre site. It is located in a rural setting approximately one-eighth mile off Glendale Avenue. It is difficult to find because there is no sign to indicate its location from the road.

There are only 25 grave markers in the cemetery; however, the District Manager informed us there could be as many as 49 graves, because some graves are known to be without markers. In order to protect the site, concrete pillars have been built around the perimeter with steel cables strung from pillar to pillar. The grounds are stark and bare and surfaced with decomposed granite. The last burial occurred in 2001.
