Cemetery records listing burial locations of military veterans are available through the Recorder's Office.
Veterans who were known at the time (up to 1939) were catalogued as part of a Works Progress Administration (WPA) project.
Each cemetery has three parts to its record: 1) An introductory card stating the exact name, date of establishment and relevant
veteran's information; 2) an information card containing an alphabetical index of all veterans buried in the cemetery, the war they served in and a burial plot locator number; and 3) a plat map indicating the location of every burial plot within the cemetery so you can determine exactly where a veteran is buried.
After the WPA project, veteran's burial records were obtained through a variety of sources until the 1980's when these records came to be handled by the Ohio Department of Vital Statistics. Since then, they have provided typewritten indices on a regular basis listing deceased veterans and their burial cemetery. These records can only be accessed from microfilm tapes at the Recorder's Office and are not currently available over the Internet.
Below is the list of cemeteries that were catalogued by the WPA with their corresponding page numbers and maps. Click the link in the "Plat Image Link" column to view the plat.
