Trinity United Church of Christ Cemetery

Formerly known as Trinity Lutheran Cemetery
Brookfield, Brookfield Township
Waukesha County Wisconsin Genealogy

Location

This cemetery is in the churchyard of Trinity United Church of Christ located at 4435 North Calhoun Road, on the west side of Calhoun Road, north of Capital Drive, Brookfield, Section 4, Brookfield Township.

History

The cemetery was established in 1869. The cemetery is closed to further additions, however it is still open to current lot owners. The church began as a German Lutheran church, known as Trinity Lutheran Church. In 1911 it joined the Evangelical Synod of North America, which in 1934 merged with the Reformed Church of America. The Reformed Church merged with the Congregational denomination and became the United Church of Christ. Trinity is now known as Trinity United Church of Christ. The cemetery is administered by the church council. Trinity also maintains the German Lutheran Church of Brookfield Cemetery on the corner of Calhoun Road and Capital Drive (under the water tower). (Cemetery #2)

Records

There are cemetery records 1948-date. The records are not complete. Earlier cemetery records were lost in 1948 during the remodeling of the old parsonage. However, the records of the church, including the records of funerals in the parish, are 1869-date. There is no chart of the cemetery. The cemetery records are available to the public during office hours Monday-Friday. The church will answer mail requests at no charge.
