Hall Cemetery

Hall Cemetery is a small rural cemetery, mainly for the long time residents of the Hall Region. It is divided into religious denominations.

A special memorial wall and ashes garden is available for interment of ashes.

The Hall Cemetery contains some very rare and endangered plants. Mowing the grass is not possible in the Spring and early Summer, allowing the plants to flower and seed.
