Reed Cemetery is located on Springville Road in the eastern area of Birmingham. It is on the western side of Springville Road between Tarpon Drive and the residence at 1348 Springville Road.
This cemetery iis in a residential area but is somewhat protected by shrubbery that blocks the view of the cemetery from the street.
The ownership of the cemetery is unknown. It appears to be well maintained. There has been some minor vandalism. There are several unmarked stones in the cemetery.
I completed transcribing this cemetery on May 05, 2007. It is a complete listing of all readable stones in the cemetery.
