Deaths, Burials, Funerals and Cemetery Records

Waukesha County Wisconsin Genealogy

"The Christian cemetery is a memorial and a record.
It is not a mere field in which the dead are stowed away unknown;
it is a touching and beautiful history,
written in family burial plots,
in mounded graves,
in sculptured and inscribed monuments.
It tells the history of the past--not of its institutions, or its wars, or its ideas,
but of its individual lives--of its men and women and children,
d and of its household.
It is silent, but eloquent, it is common, but unique."

Joseph Anderson, as quoted in Mount Moriah by Helen Rezatto

Introduction

Below is a list of cemeteries in Waukesha County by township. I have numbered the cemeeries so that it is easier for me to identify each one. Especially since some of them have the same or similar name. Many of those listed have burials transcribed for them. When I find obituaries I like them to the individual names.

Can you help?
If you are located near one of these cemeteries or have any information about burials in the cemetery please email me with your source and I will add the records. If you have any obituaries or death notices that you want to submit to us then please email them to me and I will put them in the cemeteries.
