Guilford Township Cemeteries
Guilford Township is responsible for the maintenance and administration of two cemeteries.
River Styx Cemetery, located at 8101 River Styx Road, was established as a pioneer homestead graveyard in 1821. This cemetery houses a unique gated vault dating back to 1844.
Mound Hill Cemetery, located on Main Street in Seville, is the oldest continuous operating cemetery in Medina County. Mound Hill was established as a pioneer cemetery in 1824 and serves as the final resting place for hundreds of pioneer settlers, and veterans.
Guilford Township has established cemetery rules and regulations to promote consideration for all, and preserve the beauty of each cemetery.

Visitors to Mound Hill and River Styx often inquire about the number of interments in the cemeteries. For many years the commonly accepted number was derived from a list compiled from the records of sextons and caretakers. The exact number of the graves was not certain due to deterioration of many original wooden grave markers, as well as damaged records and incomplete lists. However, in recent years, studies have been conducted which indicate there were more burials in the cemeteries than the numbers previously mentioned.
Beginning in 2007, cemetery interment records, dating from 1867 (Mound Hill), 1907 (River Styx), and vital information obtained from Ohio death certificates, family registries, early military records, federal census reports, and the Social Security Administration was compiled. In addition, family information was acquired from historical works. Generally verified from other sources, but in some cases, the writers were obliged to depend upon tradition alone, and may thus have sanctioned some errors.
These more complete records have been entered into data bases and are now available for viewing by appointment. To view to the list of interments, visit Find-A-Grave.com. Please Note: The Find-A-Grave database contains memorial entries contributed by members of the public. Therefore, the information may not reflect data discovered in Mound Hill and River Styx Cemetery records. We welcome your additions and corrections.
