In Unit One ("The Old Section") of the Mausoleum at Rosehill Cemetery is the John G. Shedd Chapel - a large open room with a podium at the front. The chapel is dedicated to the memory of John Graves Shedd whose family interment room opens into the chapel. The chapel, used for committal services in years gone by, is lined with family rooms.
In the back of the chapel, facing the Shedd room, is a family room labelled "DEMPSTER".
