Wheatland Township Cemetery

Cemetery Overview

Wheatland Township Cemetery is located on 104th Street in south Naperville, just west of  Plainfield-Naperville Road. 

Dating back to 1836, our historic cemetery offers grave sales to the general public.  We stand ready to serve your family in time of need for both traditional casket burials and cremation interments.  Our cemetery is the final resting place of over 800 citizens, including over four dozen U.S. Military Veterans.

Wheatland Township Cemetery has graves in both our New (north) and Original (south) sections.  Prices for graves and open/close costs are linked below.

Our cemetery trustees are ready to assist your family with immediate need or pre-planning purposes.  Contact information is in the left hand side margin.

Our Cemetery Manager is David Scriven-Young, assisted by Cemetery Trustees Jim Hofman and Cemetery Trustee Emeritus Richard Grommon.  Each can help your family with grave sales, cemetery tours, and general inquiries.


The cemetery was founded by area farmers who managed operations for over 160 years.  In 2001, ownership transitioned to Wheatland Township.  Our Road District employees and cemetery trustees provide care and grounds maintenance to keep the cemetery looking its best.

In 2011, the Cemetery was designated a Will County Historic Landmark by the Will County Historical Preservation Commission and County Board.
