Recreating records at Paradise Valley Cemetery

| March 30, 2023 1:00 AM

The caretaker of the Paradise Valley Cemetery is in the process of recreating all the records for the cemetery that were previously destroyed.

Officials said there are many unmarked graves and others where grave information cannot be read. If anyone or their family members have knowledge of plot ownership or if a loved one is buried in the Paradise Valley Cemetery and does not have a marker, please email the caretaker at: paradisevalleycemetery@gmail.com.

Once accurate, new records are created, a listing of the cemetery occupants will be posted on-site for the public.

At this time cemetery officials have documented the current occupants and created a sort of “floor plan.” Now they need the community’s help finding out how many open plots there are and who they belong to.
