Smithfield (Utah) Death and burial record sheets

Dates: 1982-

5 microfilm reelsSkip to Containers

These records are housed in the Utah State Archives' permanent storage room.

Scope and Content

This series contains information about burials in the cemetery, hand-written on pre-printed forms and filed in binders. The forms provide space for noting a variety of information, including the name and age of the deceased, date and place of birth, date and place of death, cause of death, attending physician, names of parents and their place of birth, name of spouse, date of funeral, funeral director's name, location and name of the owner of the burial lot, burial costs, and vault type. It appears that these records are used in collecting information that is then copied in more final form in other cemetery records. In many cases, a copy of an obituary is attached to the form and occasionally other documentation, such as mortuary forms or transit permits are included.
