Grace Hill Cemetery is a cemetery located at 1931 Martin Luther King Jr Drive in Birmingham's Mason City neighborhood. It adjoins Shadow Lawn Cemetery and sits a few blocks south of Elmwood Cemetery.

The cemetery, which houses more than 9,000 graves, dates to 1913 and was used for African-American burials during Birmingham's decades of segregation. A New Grace Hill Cemetery section, developed by A. G. Gaston, was added to the northwest of the original plat.
