Scope and Content

This series contains certificates of purchase for burial plots in the cemetery. The certificates typically record the name of the purchaser, the location of the plot, the purchase price, the date of purchase and the signature of the cemetery representative granting the certificate. The earliest certificates were issued by the Riverside LDS Ward, which owned and operated the cemetery. By the 1960's the certificates were issued by the Riverside Cemetery District. A number of other related documents are filed with some of the certificates, including reconveyance , burial-transit permits, burial information sheets, correspondence, obituaries, and photos of headstones.
