Series 30427Spanish Fork (Utah) Cemetery financial records
These records are housed in the Utah State Archives' permanent storage room.
Scope and Content
This series contains two ledgers documenting the financial business of the city cemetery. One ledger, covers the period from 1906-1929 and records accounts of grave digging, interment, registration, cleaning and general groundskeeping, watering, and the sale of lots. The labor was primarily performed by the sexton, who kept the ledger as a record of his work for payment at the end of each month. Other transactions include the list of graves sold, the amount due, the amount paid, and the name of the purchaser. The other ledger records the various accounts held by the cemetery and the amount due on the accounts. These accounts cover upkeep of the cemetery, including watering, street paving, electricity , and more. The ledger also records the names and lot locations as well as cost of lots for those purchased in the cemetery in 1922. The sale of these lots likely covered the cost of cemetery upkeep at the time.
