The Fredericksburg City Cemetery is laid out in 12 sections, with Sections 1-6 stretching between the Washington Avenue brick wall and the roadway that leads to the old, Gothic iron gate. Section 1 is closest to William Street and Section 6 is immediately next to the roadway separating the Fredericksburg City Cemetery from the Confederate Cemetery.
The sections continue counterclockwise, with Sections 7-12 between the main central roadway to the old gate and the back wall. Section 7 is closest to the Confederate Cemetery and Section 12 is along William Street. For reference, the Wallace mausoleum is in Section 11.
