We are happy to offer a new online tool to help families and friends locate the graves of their loved ones. The “Locate a Loved One” tool is available here and as a mobile app and will soon be accessible from kiosks at the cemeteries.
Here’s how it works:
To find a grave, you will need the first and last name of the deceased person as well as the name of the cemetery where they are interred. When you enter that information, you will be able to see the location of the grave within the cemetery. In addition, you may be able to access other information we have, including date of burial and the names of other people buried in a family plot. Please note, we do not have relationship information, death certificates, obituaries, dates of birth and death or the name of the church attended by the deceased.
You can add information and memories:
Once you locate your loved one’s record, you can view their memorial page by clicking on their name. You can add your own memories by clicking on Share a Memory – located on the right side of their memorial page. You can add biographical details, photos, memories and invite other family and friends to share their recollections.
There is no charge for these new features. At present, they are available at Ascension Cemetery, Gate of Heaven Cemetery, and Resurrection Cemetery. We will expand as we are able to other cemeteries entrusted to our care. Please visit these pages for updates.
