Cemeteries


Utah state law mandates that the Utah State Historic Preservation Office collect burial information and place it in a public database. The information found within this database is provided by the individual cemeteries and in some cases augmented with additional research to complete records. We also maintain a list of cemeteries and basic contact information. If you manage a cemetery, please take a moment to fill out our online contact form so our information is up to date. You can use this template to submit burial information. Cemeteries can submit their records in Excel format to utahcemeteries@utah.gov
