This small cemetery is located at 1019 Western Avenue, Albany, New York.  It is an old German Lutheran cemetery owned by St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church, which is located at 475 State St., Albany, NY 12203.  The condition of the cemetery has been greatly improved recently with a new sign in front and removal of many overgrown bushes and trees.  The entire cemetery has been well taken care of this year.  There are approximately 500-800 burials, so the list provided here is only a small portion. The cemetery is sometimes referred to as St. Paul's Cemetery.


Information for these selected burials is from the gravestone markings.  Comments giving information not provided on the stones are in brackets [  ].  A list of abbreviations found on the gravestones can be found at the bottom of this webpage.
