Cheyenne Burial Listings

Cheyenne is the capital city of Wyoming and the seat of Laramie County. It is located in the southeastern part of the state. The City’s cemetery records are managed by the City Clerk’s Office. The databases for burial listings in these cemeteries can be found on the city’s official website. Because these files are in PDF format you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader.

 

Cemetery databases include the following city cemeteries: Lakeview Cemetery, Beth El Cemetery, the International Order of Odd Fellows (I.O.O.F.) Cemetery, Serenity Gardens (Columbarium). There are also databases for Mount Olivet and Mount Sinai, which are private cemeteries. The cemetery at Francis E. Warren Air Force Base is not included in this collection of databases. Burials in these alphabetical databases date from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Data fields include name of the deceased, date of death and location of the plot in the cemetery.

 

Cheyenne Genealogical & Historical Society

The Cheyenne Genealogical & Historical Society's mission is to “stimulate and encourage family history research through a variety of endeavors and to provide members and the genealogical public with a diversity of resources.” From this website one can access the gravesite database for the Carpenter Cemetery, which is located in Carpenter, Laramie County. The first burial took place in 1909. Many burials in this cemetery do not have gravestones. Some stones have no dates, only names. The information in the database came from the original cemetery record book, obituaries from the local newspapers, death records, and birth records. The data fields do not have headers. They include full name, birth date, death date, interment date, and a notes field containing such information as where born, name of husband, wife, or parents, age, occupation, military service, and grave location.
