BULLET ST. LOUIS AREA CEMETERIES
The following list of cemeteries comprises mainly those in St. Louis city and county, although there are some entries from surrounding counties or from East St. Louis. The list is compiled from a variety of sources. Many entries were found in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch while indexing obituaries from that newspaper. Other sources include our Local History Card File, clipping files, telephone books, and historic directories.

For cemeteries with hypenated names, an attempt has been made to list the cemetery under each name. Location information or notes are supplied when known. Dates at end of entry are for founding and closing, "?" is for date ranges appearing on tombstone. Every effort is made to be as thorough as possible and additional information is added as uncovered.

Cemeteries marked with an asterisk (*) are those currently accepting burials
