Description

Shadow Lawn was originally deeded in 1889 as a "colored" burial ground and is the largest African American cemetery in Birmingham. The database for the Shadow Lawn Memorial Gardens Cemetery Interments is a work in progress and does not currently include the name of every person buried at there. When the database is complete, it will include the name and grave location for every person identified in the cemetery's surviving records.
