Chandler Cemetery has been designated a Pioneer Cemetery by the Des Moines County Pioneer Cemetery Commission.

Chandler is in the southwest corner of section 25, Union Township, a block deep on the north side of Old Highway 61 (now Madison Road), just east of the junction of old and new 61. The earliest grave is that of Luther Bailey, d. 1841. There are many unmarked graves and the cemetery is not kept up.
