6 microfilm reelsSkip to Containers

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

Scope and Content

This series contains books recording burials in the cemetery. The books hold pre-printed forms with two entries on each page. The forms include space for recording the date of the record, name of the deceased, parents' names, birth date and place, death date, cause of death, attending doctor or nurse, and burial location. Some of the earliest forms are signed by the informant, but most are signed by the sexton instead. Additional information, such as place of death, name of spouse, or military service, is sometimes noted as well.

Arrangement

Chronological by burial date.

Additional Forms

This series is available on microfilm.

Access Restrictions

This series is classified as Public.

Gaps in Series

Numerous pages came loose from these registers over time and, while some were re-inserted into these books prior to microfilming, various gaps in the entry numbers indicate that some loose pages in the earlier books were lost at some point. Consequently, the records for some burials are missing from the series.

Processing Note

Prior to microfilming in 2013, a number of loose pages from these registers were found. The pages were re-inserted into the books as accurately as possible before they were microfilmed. Some of the books had been re-bound and cut down since the pages had been lost, so the inserted pages are larger than rest of the pages in the books.

Processing Note

The microfilm for this series was archivally processed by Alan Barnett in September 2013.
