Q and A about people buried at Laurel Grove:
How do I find someone buried at Laurel Grove?
Use links in the right sidebar to find by first letter of last name or use search box. Note that due to the differences in record keeping over the history of the cemetery, and that some markers have been destroyed or taken, not all burial sites are consistently numbered on the website. Corrections will be welcomed. See ‘I found an error’ below for how to notify the webmaster.
Is everyone buried at Laurel Grove listed on the website?
Almost all are. There are 4156 burial records on this site, each on it own page. Not every plot has updated information but volunteers are working to update each one with the correct information.
Some names don’t have a photo of the headstone. Why is that?
Not all of the headstones have been photographed, and those that have are being added all the time. Sadly, though, not all of the graves have headstones. Some have been broken or vandalized, and some never had a permanent marker.
How to Find Veterans at Laurel Grove:
Veterans can be found by entering the veteran’s name in the ‘search’ box on the right sidebar or in the top menu bar. The page for each veteran will often have his or her rank and the war(s) they fought in, if that information is available. In addition, the master page for each block has a listing of known veterans that are buried in that block. There are five known veterans that are buried in Laurel Grove without location information. They are:
Eugene H Peebles
George Vivian Haley

Important note regarding locations: Cemetery record keeping systems have changed over the years since Laurel Grove’s first burial in 1855 and information about grave locations and the individuals buried at Laurel Grove have varying levels of completeness and accuracy. Although we’d like to have complete information on every person, there are often details missing, and location information varies based on when the burial was recorded.
Where there are blanks in location fields, we have used default values as placeholders. They are:
Any burial listed in ‘Block 22’ is in an unknown or unrecorded location
Any burial in blocks 1-11 that is listed in ‘Row 99’ is in that block, but the row is unrecorded or unknown
Any burial in blocks 1-11 and in rows 1-14 that is listed in ‘Lot ZZ’ is in that row, but the lot is unrecorded or unknown
