2030 burials. The cemetery was established by the Manyberries Cemetery Company which was formed on October 13, 1917. The company agreed that their capital stock would be $750.00 and this was obtained by the sale of 15 shares at $50.00 each. Each share entitled the owner to one family plot in the cemetery. When the shares were sold each purchaser had to pay $12.50 of the $50.00 share price in cash. The cemetery was registered under the provisions of the ?Cemetery Ordinance' in 1918.

The cemetery is located north west of the village of Manyberries. From Red Coat Trail (Highway #61 which becomes Strawberry Ave in the Village) turn onto Blueberry Street. At the T- intersection turn left onto an unmarked gravel road and drive less than a mile to the cemetery.
