1.20 cubic feet and 3 microfilm reelsSkip to Containers

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

Scope and Content

This series contains a number of volumes of interment registers for the Spanish Fork City Cemetery. Register formats differ between volumes but most include columns for the name of the deceased, date and place of birth, parents' names, marital status, date and place of death, cause of death, and location of grave. A few entries in the oldest volume predate burial in the City Cemetery; those individuals are listed as buried in the Old Palmyra graveyard. One of the volumes contains original pages rebound in new book cover; the pages remain in original order but because the binding format is different, their layout differs from the original ledger.


Chronological by date of death.

The volumes were filmed in no particular order. The entries within the volumes are arranged chronologically.
