Welcome

The blue boxes above provide access to data.

  • "Cemeteries" - provides information about the cemeteries themselves, such as the name, registration number, location and access information. It also includes the number of gravestones, most recent and earliest dates of death, a photograph, GPS readings, Google map, burial ground sketch map, and complete list of known interred, plus much more. Interactive maps are included for the two public cemeteries: Linden Grove and Maple Grove. An indicative map is provided for Beech Grove public cemetery. As of June, 2013 photographs, gravestone and other data are still being collected for Beech Grove. Please check back periodically.
  • "Interred" - focuses on information about individuals. For private cemeteries, it includes, when known, the name, birth and death dates, age, gender, veteran status, name of cemetery, relatives, and detailed information about the stones, inscriptions and genealogical information. For public cemeteries, a photo of each stone, where available, is included and information on the stone is therefore omitted. A map is also included indicating location of plots. When a plot has been purchased, but there are no interred, "Empty" appears in the spot for the name. There are a substantial number of persons listed in written historic records for plots for whom there is no stone. We are in the process of researching to determine if that person is actually buried in that lot. Please use that data with caution and check back periodically.
  • "Background" - explains the project and the people who made it happen.
  • "Information" - provides the G.R. number from the Westport Vital Records to 1850, warnings about entry into and upkeep of the various cemeteries and other miscellaneous information. If you wish to add more information, please contact us.

This website is administered by the Cemetery Identification Group (CIG) under the auspices of the Westport Historical Commission and the Westport Cemetery Department and is listed in the Town of Westport website.
