     The Pioneer & Military Memorial Park is the final resting place of some of Arizona's most notable pioneer citizens.   It is comprised of seven historic cemeteries which were in use between 1884 and 1914.  They are:  Ancient Order of United Workmen (AOUW), Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF), Knights of Pythias (K of P), Loosley, Masons, Porter and Rosedale.  In May 1988, the seven historic cemeteries were officially designated as the Pioneer & Military Memorial Park with the dedication of the Avenue of Flags and the new fence.  The Park was entered on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007. 

      Please be aware that the death records naming the burial place may have used different names for the same cemetery. Loosley and City Cemetery refer to the same cemetery. Rosedale is sometimes called Loring or Walker. The GAR and Confederate (or ex-Confederate) cemeteries are both sections of Porter Cemetery.

     Records show that between two and three hundred burials were later moved from these cemeteries, the majority of them to what is now Greenwood Memory Lawn. In most cases, the markers were also moved to the new burial site. We have chosen to include these names on our list since the records show that the first interment was made in one of the downtown cemeteries. 

     This list of burials in the historic Phoenix cemeteries is a work in progress. We take responsibility for typos and transcription errors and add our apologies. In the various sources used, there were conflicting spellings, dates, burial locations, and even names for a single person.
