LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville cemetery is getting an updated look thanks to volunteers.

Saturday morning, members of the Iroquois Neighborhood Association and the Loom House worked to clean up Fenley Cemetery.

Many of the graves there were completely covered and forgotten.

Volunteers cleaned up years of overgrowth and thick vegetation, and planted daffodils at the graves.

Organizers say they just wanted to show respect to the people who are buried there.

"You could hardly even see any stones when we first came in, you literally had to cut your way through. We began to wonder if we could get from the entrance to the back corner. Eventually we did and we found numerous stones along the way," Co-organizer Rosemary McCandless said.

Now that it's cleaned up, volunteers hope a church group will take over the duties to keep the cemetery clean.
