Acton Memorial Cemetery marker

Acton Memorial Cemetery is located at 4660 Caldwell Mill Road. It was established on August 18, 1882 with the death of Elizabeth Lee Acton, wife of Reverend William Acton. U.S. President Millard Fillmore deeded the land to Reverend Acton in 1852.

The cemetery is composed primarily of William and Elizabeth's descendants. The cemetery is adjacent to Acton Memorial Presbyterian Church and existed 29 years before the church was established. A memorial marker was placed at the entrance to the cemetery after it was added to the Alabama Historic Cemetery Register on February 7, 2022.

There is an older cemetery named Old Acton Cemetery that is located in Shelby County on private land.
