Ada Township Cemeteries
There are many choices available when considering burial options. By making arrangements now, you will provide comfort for your family and loved ones. A cemetery is not only a resting place for those who have passed on, it is a place of comfort for the living who mourn in remembrance of their loved ones.
Ada Township owns and maintains two cemeteries: Ada Cemetery and Findlay Cemetery. Both cemeteries have available a selection of lots and burial options. Lots may be purchased at either location, provided you are a current resident of Ada Township.

Ada Township Cemetery Locations:
Located west of the corner of Fulton Street SE (M-21) and Grand River Drive (Cemetery Locator Map), Ada Cemetery is the final resting place for Rix Robinson who founded Ada in 1821, and purchased a trading post from Madame Magdelaine LaFramboise (who headed North and later retired to Mackinac Island). Rix Robinson was the first Supervisor when Ada was established as a Township in 1838; a large marker marks the spot of Rix Robinson's grave. Many earlier pioneers who have streets named after them in honor of their memory and for their contributions to the establishment of our beautiful Township are also buried in the Ada Cemetery. Plots/spaces are available for $300.
