Scope and Content

This series documents burials in the City Cemetery in the form of a ledger. Ledger columns include the interment number, the name of the deceased, burial permit number, dates of death and interment, sex and age of deceased, place of death, location of grave, date and place of birth, owner of lot, deed number, and removal information. From 1859 to 1893, the column entitled "Place of death" is used for the name of the medical attendant, and from 1848 to 1893, the column entitled "Undertaker" is used for names of relatives. Columns labelled "Death Certificate Number" and "Cause of Death" appear on the ledgers between 1848 and 1920, and between 1934 and 1959. Not all columns are completed for all individuals.
