Welcome to the Aledo Cemetery:

The 34 1/4 acres of land located at 612 SE 5th Ave Aledo is the home of the Aledo Cemetery.  The City of Aledo owns and maintains the cemetery in excellent condition.  The original cemetery first plate was in May 1863.  The mausoleum was erected in 1913.  Many additions have been added since the first original  plate.  Stop by an visit, walk the grounds or enjoy  Memorial Park.  Donations can be made at City Hall to help with the upkeep of this beautiful place.
