Alston Cemetery

   

Ragley

Turn south on Pilgrim Rest Road from LA 12, which is about half way between DeQuincy and Ragley. After 2 1/2 miles, Pilgrim Rest Road will become gravel, but you continue on straight till it makes a sharp right turn---less than 1/2 of a mile farther. The road will make a sharp left---the cemetery will be 1/2 mile more...a total of about 5 miles. There is a woods type road all around Alston; the main gate is on the north end, but a secondary gate is on the south.  This is the only sign designating the Alston Cemetery. There is not another sign nor one at the cemetery. The cemetery is located at the very end of the road.
