Cemetery Records

  We now have 45,050 burials from 124 Clermont cemeteries on our website. This project has taken three years to complete by many volunteers.
  The records include cemetery photos and inscriptions that had been posted on our old website by the original Webmaster, Donald Johnson. Added to these records are inscriptions for stones which     could not be found by CCGS volunteers when photographing the cemetery, but are in the 1950 era book Monument Inscriptions Prior to 1900 from Cemeteries in Clermont County, Ohio, Copied by   Beech Forest Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution. CCGS obtained permission from the Mariemont Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (who retain the property of the   dissolved Beech Forest Chapter DAR)
 to include those inscriptions. Burials with the notation regarding the book where the inscription came from are also included for the 124 cemeteries.
  So many volunteers have made this project possible. If you look at the information about each cemetery you will see the dates and name(s) of the original volunteer(s) who took the photos and often       probed to find stones. This multi-year effort was led by CCGS member, Pam Smith. Since January, 2021, CCGS volunteers Pat Dudek, Mark Peterson, Chris Ritz, Alyssa Dugan and Paige Craig have   worked to convert the information to a standard data base format used by our website.
If you are logged in as a member you can search the data base a few different ways:
County/Region – Choose the township and all burials in that township will be returned.
Cemetery – Choose the cemetery and all burials in that cemetery will be returned.
Surname – Type the surname and all entries with that name will be returned. (Leaving this blank will return all records.)
Or, you can combine the surname with the township or cemetery.
Let us know if you find any broken links or data which you believe may be incorrect by emailing In addition, check back now that we can begin adding records one at a time.
