Description

This is a non-denominational cemetery, however, a good share of the interments are members of the northside Lutheran Churches. In 1988 the name was changed from Wanderers Rest to Lincoln Memorial Cemetery. The name changing after two "crooks" bought the cemetery, ran it down, sold above-ground crypts which were never built and then ran off with all of the monies and we believe some of the trust fund money also. After the "crooks" left, people could not find graves for there was no money to even cut the grass or pick up fallen limbs that were on top of headstones and monuments. When the grass was higher than knees of the tallest men, the other cemeteries on the north side of Milwaukee got together to help out these owners. They sent their grounds crews over to Wanderer's Rest and did the limb removing and the grass cutting. The new owners are Bronzestone Group. Bronzestone Group of Nashotah is the cemetery arm of Granite Resources Corp (a supplier of granite and marble products for residential and commercial buildings). Bronzestone owns at least 26 cemeteries which include Valhalla Memorial Garden in Milwaukee.
