Barnesville has three cemeteries, all of which are located just west of Barnesville off State Highway 9.
Although it is called “City Cemetery” but has no official standing with the city of Barnesville. Reorganized 25 years ago, it is governed by the Board of Directors of the Barnesville Cemetery Association. The organization relies heavily on volunteer help from the community for beautification and upkeep projects. It is actively involved in fundraising in order to maintain a perpetual care fund. Lot sales are handled by sexton Vern Barker. If you are seeking information regarding the location of grave sites, please contact Vern Barker, Duane Rossett, or any other board member.
