Chartiers Cemetery, Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Pennsylvania, United States of America

Notes: There isn't much descriptive or historical information available concerning
Chartiers Cemetery. This cemetery was started in 1862. There have been
8 or 9 owners. Reportedly (September, 1999), a company called Cornerstone
Cemeteries owns it. They are probably a "holding company" because it is
identified as:

Chartiers Cemetery Company
801 Noblestown Rd,
Pittsburgh, PA 15106-1249
Phone: (412)276-3366
Distance from downtown Pittsburgh: 4.71 miles

Prior to Cornerstone Cemeteries ownership, the cemetery was always owned
by individuals. There are approximately 35,000 burials here, including a
large section reserved for men who have served in the Civil War.

The current manager has mentioned that Chartiers Cemetery is one of a
few cemeteries left that still allow headstones and planting flowers.
Apparently a lot of cemeteries only allow flat stones now.
