Free Online Cemetery & Tombstone Transcriptions
& Burial Registers

tombstoneAll these links lead to cemetery plot plans, tombstone transcriptions and/or photos, burial, death registers, etc.

All are free, although some sites may require you to register or allow cookies to be set. A few are contacts for tombstone transcribers who will reply with the text of a grave marker and / or photo.

Please report any broken links, or a change in status, should a site start requesting payment for access. Also, please send me the URLs for any other sources of cemetery plot plans, tombstone transcriptions, and burial registers that are available on-line at no charge.

To be useful and appropriate to this page, linked sites must have the NAMES, LOCATIONS and DATES of death or burial available online. Websites of photos of tombstones may be linked, but they must be clear enough that tombstone engravings are legible, or their inscriptions available in text format.

If I use your links, I'll send you a REAL postcard.
