It is unlikely that cemetery indexes will be posted on this site; however, all Piute County cemeteries have been transcribed with the data entered among other information in each person's biographical file.  Some photos and cemetery information was contributed by Andy E. Wold.

A searchable database containing some of Piute County's cemeteries is available through the Utah State Historical Society.  Utah Cemetery Burials database -- opens in new window
