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

Scope and Content

These cards document some of the individual burials in the Charleston cemetery. The cards include blanks for the name of the sexton; the deceased's name; date and place of birth; name of parents; religious affiliation; date, place, and cause of death; name of medical attendant at time of death; location of grave and type of casket. These cards may initially have been used to document the issuance of deeds to individual graves and payment for plots as early cards contain notes as to when a deed was issued and if payment was made.

Arrangement

Numerical by card number.

Some individual cards that had apparently fallen out of the book are filmed in numerical order at the end of the reel.
