Established in 1868, the Ferndale (California) Cemetery is one of the state's most beautiful and historic burial sites, sweeping up a rhododendron-covered hillside to a crest overlooking the Eel River Valley and westward to the Pacific Ocean.
The Ferndale Museum keeps a cemetery list for genealogy research. This list consists of a detailed list for the Ferndale Cemetery, less detailed for the St. Mary's Cemetery & Loleta. From their list, you can find the date of death & from there a high chance of finding an obituary in The Ferndale Enterprise.
The Ferndale Cemetery Association is a 501(c)3 charitable non-profit organization, located in the city of Ferndale, California in Humboldt County. It is managed by a volunteer board of ten directors, chosen from the owners of burial properties.
The board of directors meets in the months of January, March, May, July, September, and November on the second Monday at 5 p.m. in the Nichols-Carr Conference Room of the Ferndale Museum, 414 Shaw Avenue, Ferndale, 95536.
