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

Scope and Content

This series contains information about each burial in the cemetery, recorded on pre-printed 5" x 8" cards. The cards provide space for noting a variety of information, including the name and age of the deceased, date and place of birth, date of death, cause of death, attending physician, names of parents and their place of birth, name of spouse, date of burial, location and name of the owner of the burial lot, lot purchase information, burial costs, and funeral director's name. Information for many burials was transcribed from earlier record books and the source of that information is often noted on the card. Some of those earlier sources have apparently been lost or destroyed, so this series is the most complete record of burials up to 2010, when the cemetery ceased creating these cards and transferred the information to computer data files.
