Did you ever wonder how many cemeteries there are in Wayne County? The WCCPS members have found 258, and this includes many family cemeteries that were located on farms.

If you are traveling to our county to find one of these cemeteries, where would you go to look for this information? WCCPS has a book called A Guide to the Cemeteries of Wayne County, Ohio. Each cemetery is listed with road directions on 'how to get there,' a GPS reading, and a map of the township.

The WCCPS publications listed below contain the following information, unless stated otherwise:

  • Location by Range, Township and section and also by GPS Coordinates
  • A short history of the cemetery and church, if applicable
  • A complete row-by-row listing of tombstone inscriptions
  • A row-by-row index including maiden names
  • A short biographical listing of every person buried within, arranged alphabetically, including maiden name, middle name, parents' names and military information
  • Our "Township Small Cemeteries" books contain all the remaining cemeteries in that particular townshp that are too small to compose a separate book
  • Sample page row by row
