History & Facilities

The first parishes within the city of Rockford were St. Mary Parish and St. James Parish. These parishes located their cemeteries next to each other – which is why the cemetery today is called St. Mary/St. James Cemetery. The first burials were prior to 1850. Information on burial records, graves available, mausoleum and niche space available, can be given by the personnel at the Office of Catholic Cemeteries, located in Calvary Catholic Cemetery, 8616 West State Road, Winnebago, IL 61088; 815-965-1450
