Take Route 10 toward Salt Rock.  When you come to Upper Heath Creek Road   (on your Right) go about 100 yard past this road.  Then turn Left into Mays Chapel Church parking lot (church is no longer in use).   In the parking lot on your Right is a old haul road that goes up the hill to the cemetery.   At one time it had a fenced around it and look to be well mainted.
