Cromwell Cemetery AKA Hales Passage Scandinavian Lutheran Cemetery

Cromwell Cemetery AKA Hales Passage Scandinavian Lutheran Cemetery
Cromwell Cemetery also known as Hales Passage Scandinavian Lutheran Cemetery is a rural country cemetery located in an area called Cromwell on the outskirts of Gig Harbor Washington near the Fox Island Bridge. It is lovingly cared for by a group of dedicated volunteers.

The Cemetery hosts an annual work party to weed, clean the stones and mow the cemetery the Saturday prior to Memorial Day weekend. The work party is followed by a potluck lunch and annual meeting. It is a slice of Americana that is very special. Everyone is welcome!

Cromwell Cemetery is a “Burial Only” cemetery; meaning that plots are available for purchase; the Cemetery does not conduct funeral services, dig the graves or install monuments or headstones. Those services are available through a variety of regional businesses. Haven of Rest, a Gig Harbor funeral home digs all of the graves for full burial and cremated remains.

Currently there are about 300 burials in the Cemetery dating back to 1903 when the cemetery began. There is sufficient plotted land for future burials in northeast corner, which is the flat grassy area to the right of the older area under the Fir trees. Each plot is $400, and measures 4’ x 9’ 3 ˝ “. One full burial is allotted per plot.

Cremains may be buried by family members or by a contractor over a casket as long as they are 18” below ground level. A bare plot can hold unlimited cremains. All burials, full or buried cremains require an “Application for Burial” form to be completed along with a $50 fee that is registered with the Secretary of the Cemetery Association.

Should you wish to purchase a plot(s) please contact us and we will be happy to set up an appointment for you to choose a site(s).

Cromwell Cemetery maintains a database of all burials which are available to view on this website. We have included additional information under “Cemetery Resources” that can assist you with your genealogical research.
