Interment Records
What Are They?

Interment records are the records kept by the cemetery in which they record the date of death and date of interment for persons that they bury. Some cemeteries use interment numbers, some don't and only use dates. The amount of information contained in these records are determined by each cemetery. Therefore, no two cemeteries will necessarily have the same information.

For the most part, Cleveland City owned cemeteries have pretty much the same information. That information being: Date of Death; Interment Date; Name; Sex; Age; Color; Address; Cause of Death; Section, Lot, Tier & Grave Number; and there is also a place for remarks. Some records also include the undertaker's name.

Some private cemeteries have more, some have much less. Almost all cemeteries keep a record of when a body is disinterred and moved to another cemetery, or if one is brought in from another cemetery. This is not a hard and fast rule, but with the cemeteries I have personally dealt with, this has been the case.

Lorraine "Sunny" Newsome, my co-coordinator, passed away recently. Shortly afterwards this site was attacked by a MALWARE. When it was discovered, the site was appropriately shut down by Rootsweb. Non-infected files have been uploaded but in the process some files were lost as they were ones Sunny had worked on and I did not have copies at all or have outdated copies. Please let me know about any missing or broken links.
