Utah state law mandates the Utah Division of State History to collect burial information and place it in a public, searchable database. The information found within this searchable 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 excel spreadsheet template to submit burial information.

Cemeteries can submit their records in excel format to Amy Barry.

**Please note: If you find an error in the database, please contact the cemetery to make the correction in the official record. We do not maintain their files and each cemetery sexton has different policies related to updates.

Gravestone Preservation

Interested organizations and people can find more resources on how to properly clean and repair headstones.

In the future we intend to offer workshops and training throughout the state. Preservation projects may be eligible for a matching grant. See information below.



We fund small grants for cemetery preservation, cemetery records digitization and GIS mapping.
Grants are limited to $10,000 and require a 50/50 match, which may include a mix of monetary match, volunteer hours, and/or donated goods and services.
Grant recipients will be reimbursed upon receipt of evidence they have met agreed-upon program goals.
