Re: Find A Grave
In Response To: Find A Grave ()
When I know the name and address of the cemetery I write the cemetery directly and ask them to send me a photocopy of all the information they have in their file for the decedent (I send the name, birth year, date of death and place of death (City, county and State). I send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to assist them in returning the information to me. I have never been turned down. The information they send often times includes, the plot information where the decedent is buried, the cause of death, who paid for the burial and any maintenance fees, who in the family is buried nearby if family plots. I hope this information is helpful to you.
