If you would like to find family information for a particular headstone, simply click the photo of choice and it will take you to the page connected to that stone. 

This Blue Island Sun Standard article, Pioneers in Peaceful Rest, from August of 1935 is a key part of documenting who was actually buried in Bachelors Grove.

A reporter does a  walk through with Joseph Fulton as he gives a personal account of his memory of those buried within the cemetery.

Much of what we know about the burials in Bachelors Grove Cemetery is due to the research done by Brad Bettenhausen, President of the Tinley Park Historical Society. Mr. Bettenhausen published his findings in the Fall 1995 edition of Where The Trails Cross. Subsequent research done by us and others is based on his findings.  

The Tinley Park Historical Society houses many artifacts and much information on Bachelors Grove, including a permanent display in their museum.

The Collection of burial documentation below has been gathered over the last five years. We began with Brad Bettenhausens Bachelors Grove Cemetery edition of Where the Trails Cross published in 1995. 

Slowly over the years and  many hours of research we have gathered together as much information on each burial lot that we can, located 12 burials that were previously unknown to be buried in Bachelors Grove, located photos of missing headstones, revisited historical societies and talked with many people trying to locate/gather/authenticate  any documentation of the cemetery or its burials.

We then archive the information and organize that information here. In itself that has been a task that has taken almost two years to 

get to the point it is as of today 4/6/18. It is a project that is ongoing and will continue to be. ​​

 We are always looking for anyone with information on the burials, cemetery and immediate surrounding area.
