LocationMelrose Caverns, Rockingham County, Virginia. From Harrisonburg, Virginia, take Route 11 north (North Valley Pike) to Route 721 (Fellowship Road). Turn right. Travel about 1/2 mile to Country Boy Lane and turn right. This is a dirt/gravel lane next to old house that is facing Route 721. The cemetery is located towards the end of this lane.
NotesEnclosed and overgrown. In 2011 and 2008 no attempt was made to record/photograph this cemetery, as it was overgrown. Many of the headstones were moved to Fellowship UM Church Cemetery but believe the remains are still located in this cemetery.
