Cemetery Department

Powell Township Cemetery  was established in 1919. Efforts are being made to update our burial information for the public. Access to the information can currently be requested from the Sextant or Clerk. 

In 2019, the Cemetery Ordinance was updated to rectify Winter Burial and Open Hours. Please see the Cemetery Ordinance Amendment for burial rules/policies and hours.

Veteran’s Memorial

Every year, Powell Township with the Cemetery Sextant will place flowers and flags for the Veteran’s in our cemetery. Also on Memorial Day, our local veteran chapter have the Honor Roll read off. Powell Township strives to give our Veterans alive and deceased the respect they deserve.

Donations from the public and a great benefactor worked on purchasing the Veteran’s Memorial Headstone in 2018. 


Memorial Day Service for 05/25/2020 has been cancelled due to the precautions taken to prevent the spread of the coronovirus. The Cemetery is open to the public but please be aware of social distancing and your safety
