Buckingham Cemetery is about three miles north of Mansfield High School in Buckingham Draw, south of Buckingham Spring and west of Middle Foster Creek about .3 mile.

The cemetery is situated near the old Buckingham Post Office, which was used by the small town of Buckingham when the town and this cemetery were active. There is no road leading into this abandoned town except perhaps through private property, and they do not let people enter.

The cemetery was for the town of Buckingham and is now owned by Douglas County and is supposed to be maintained by one of their Cemetery Districts. When I contacted the County commissioners, they just did not know anything about it, so I was unable to find out which District is responsible and why it is not maintained and/or given an entrance road.

In Aug of 2004 I spent one whole afternoon walking through wheatfields and trying dead-end roads to access it and was not able to reach it. I am told one can find it in the winter by snowmobile. It is said to have about 20-30 old upright stones and is fenced in.

I found these names by researching various records. I will gladly add to my listing if anyone has a known burial for this cemetery.
