Jewish Cemetery Database

Access the cemetery database

Burial information was gathered from synagogues, individuals and funeral homes. While many cemeteries, synagogues and individuals were helpful in allowing access to their records, old, damaged, incomplete, or missing records made the task of compiling information a challenge.

As a result, we know that there are missing burials from the database that we were not able to gather. If you have information to share or corrections please visit “Contact Us” and send us your information.

Search Tips:

  • Names are alphabetized within Cemetery Listings
  • When searching for a name such as Stein, the system will bring you to all names that contain “stein” in them. To avoid this use quotes at the beginning and end of the name (i.e., “Stein”).
  • Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery was formerly known as Ridge Road 1.
  • If you know the cemetery you are looking for you can type that in the ‘Cemetery’ field.
