Scope and Content

This series consists of records documenting burial and ownership of graves in the Clearfield cemetery. The first item is a two-page partial list of plot owners, certificate and lot numbers, and dates of transfer.

The second item is an interment register. Ledger columns in the interment register include the interment number, name of the deceased, permit number, death certificate number, date of interment, date of death, sex, age, place of death, cause of death, location of grave, name of the undertaker, date of birth, place of birth, owner of lot, deed number, removal information, and a column for remarks which may include parents' names. Not all columns are completed for all individuals. The interment register also includes a name index arranged alphabetically by the first letter of the deceased's last name.

The third set of documents are cemetery cards documenting burials. Cards are filed alphabetically by the deceased's last name. Cards include the name of the deceased, interment number, address, date of burial, funeral director, property owner, and the grave location.

The final set of documents are cemetery cards documenting ownership of lots. These cards, which are filed alphabetically by the last name of the owner of the lot, include the name of the owner, phone number, address, lot description, the date the deed was issued, deed number, and any financial transactions between the individual and the cemetery. The ownership cards are followed by cards related specifically to burials in those graves and include spaces for the name of the deceased, age, sex, interment number, relationship to owner, and special burial instructions. Some also have parents' or spouse's names, place and date of birth, and place and date of death.
