The records at Laurel Hill Cemetery serve as an important resource for those doing genealogical research and we are happy to assist you in finding more information for the completion of your family tree. Recently, The Friends of Laurel Hill Cemetery have completed Phase Five of our Archives Preservation Project: the digitization of our interment records with an online search feature. All proceeds from Genealogical Information Requests go to offset online monthly maintenance fees for the interment records and towards general preservation of the archives.


Genealogical Information Requests

Genealogical Information Requests include:

1. Copies of all burial permits and sales information
2. A map with lot location clearly indicated
3. Any additional items such as obituaries, personal histories, historic photos, etc.

Genealogical Information Request rates are as follows:
$25.00 per lot + $5.00 shipping & handling (if mailed)

If your lot has extensive records or large numbers of burials we will contact you for alternate pricing within a week.

If you are located out of the area or have interests in headstones or epitaphs, we can provide high-resolution photos of the lot for $2.50 per photo.
