From downtown Carlton, there are two ways to get to this cemetery. You can travel west on Hwy 72 and turn right onto New Town Church Road which will become dirt about halfway to the cemetery. You can also travel east on Hwy 72 and turn left onto Paoli Rd. This is a bit longer, but most of the drive is paved. You can also reach this cemetery by coming from New Hope Presbyterian Church following Paoli Rd. toward Hwy 72.

Via New Town Church Road, turn north off of Hwy 72. Once you pass Duckworth Brown Road on your left, New Town Church Road will soon turn to dirt. Continue on and watch for a creek. After crossing the creek, watch for a brick house on the left that has a wide concrete driveway and a single vehicle car port. There will be a mobile home across the road. As you pass the brick house's driveway, you will notice a mowed area to the right of the house that curves around away from the road and into the trees. This is the roadway to the cemetery. A few yards from the driveway to the house is a break in the brush where you can turn into the roadway to the cemetery without having to go through the yard of the house. The roadway opens up into the yard of the cemetery. There is plenty of room for parking and turning around.

Via Paoli Road, travel east on Hwy 72 from Carlton. You will pass a granite yard on the left, then come to an intersection where there is a granite block building in the far right corner. Turn left onto Paoli Rd. You will cross Noble Road. The next road will be New Town Church Road, turn left here. The drive way for the turn to the cemetery will be 0.6 miles on the right.

From Paoli/New Hope Presbyterian Church, follow Paoli Road to New Town Church Road. Turn left, then go the 0.6 mile to the drive way turning right.
