The Cemetery of Our Lady

Author: Host DT/Friday, July 15, 2016/Categories: News

Work began on Monday, August 3, 2015 and was completed ahead of the six to eight week time frame the private contractor estimated.  Based on input from Missouri Department of Conservation every ash tree in the cemetery needed to be removed due to Emerald Borer infestation.  This work was done by the employees of Catholic Cemeteries.  As a separate issue, the water retention in various areas of the cemetery also was addressed. A private landscaping company re-graded sections using state-of-the-art laser technology.  All lawn-level markers were removed during this time and replaced to their original locations upon completion of the re-grading.  Monuments were not affected and burials continued as usual. Redbud, Yoshino Cherry and Kwanzan Cherry trees will be planted throughout the cemetery this fall. Thank you for your patience while these necessary improvements and beautification were completed.

FAQ

My burial search produced several people with my last name. Can you tell me if they are related to my family buried there?

My burial search produced several people with my last name. Can you tell me if they are related to my family buried there?

Catholic Cemetries of the Archdiocese of St. Louis maintains burial records only. No information is avalable on family relationships or other family members buried at the cemeteries. Another resouce would be The Vital Records Office. This is a public library of public records on the nearly 250 years of history on the people and property of Saint Louis. Beginning July 1, 2002, the Vital Records Office became part of the Saint Louis City Recorder of Deeds Office in City Hall at 1200 Market Street, St. Louis, Missouri 63103.
