There isn't much descriptive or historical information available concerning Chartiers Cemetery. This cemetery was started in 1862.
There have been 8 or 9 owners. Reportedly (September, 1999), a company called Cornerstone Cemeteries owns it. They are probably a
"holding company" because it is identified as:
Chartiers Cemetery Company
801 Noblestown Rd,
Pittsburgh, PA 15106-1249
Distance from downtown Pittsburgh: 4.71 miles
Prior to Cornerstone Cemeteries ownership, the cemetery was always owned by individuals. There are approximately 35,000 burials here,
including a large section reserved for men who have served in the Civil War.
The current manager has mentioned that Chartiers Cemetery is one of a few cemeteries left that still allow headstones and planting
flowers. Apparently a lot of cemeteries only allow flat stones now.
