Holy Cross Cemetery – Detroit, MI

20125090096_442424f5ba_nHoly Cross Catholic Cemetery, located at 8850 Dix Avenue, began in the 1830’s as a mission settlement known as the Dix Settlement. Although the original two acre cemetery was not dedicated until 1840, burials occurred adjacent to the log cabin where religious services were held in Dix Settlement. In 1906, the cemetery was expanded and now boasts 40 acres. The Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit oversees this and four other area burial properties that include Holy Sepulchre, Mount Carmel, Our Lady of Hope, and St. Joseph. During the Spring of 2015, PARI was granted permission by the Catholic Funeral & Cemetery Services, a Ministry of the Archdiocese of Detroit, to digitize their index cards utilized for maintaining burial records for Holy Cross. Inspired by the Downriver Genealogical Society, PARI volunteers have created this online data base of burial records for Holy Cross Cemetery which now allows the staff of the Catholic Funeral & Cemetery Services serve its patrons more efficiently. We offer our heartfelt thanks for both the inspiration from the Downriver Genealogical Society; and the embracing reception and assistance from the Catholic Funeral & Cemetery Services staff.
