• St. James Cemetery is located on the west side of the church, at 18228 CTH R, Denmark, WI 54208, immediately behind the church parking lot. The oldest gravestone in St. James Cemetery is dated 1857. Two men from the area who served in the Civil War are buried here, as are many other servicemen from other wars. Land is owned adjacent to the current cemetery for future use. While St. James Church has overall jurisdiction over the cemetery, the day-to-day operations are handled by a Sexton. Our Sexton is Brandon Wotachek, and he can help individuals purchase burial sites, and also assist families when planning a funeral.

  • Plot Purchase Costs

    • $500 for parish members
    • $800 for non-parishioners
  • Donation Opportunity

    We have a peaceful, beautiful cemetery for our loved ones, but unfortunately there are many tilting, sinking and unlevel headstones. Our cemetery committee has approved purchasing a headstone lift to assist a team of volunteers to straighten the monuments. All donated money will be put towards this lift which costs over $3000.00. Thank you for helping us offset the cost of this equipment. 

  • Cemetery Regulations
          Planting shrubs, trees or roses in the cemetery is not allowed. Flowers may be planted in front of the monument but may not exceed the width of the monument and surrounding platform.

Artificial flowers may be placed in front of the monument between May 1 and October 1; winter memorials between Nov. 1 and April 30. Iron or metal plant holders must be placed in front of the monument. Thank you for cooperating so that the grass can easily be mowed around the monuments.
