Mount Auburn’s “community of the dead” now totals more than 100,000 people. Among those buried here are some of the men and women who have shaped our local, regional, and national identity: activists, authors, designers, inventors, scientists, and philosophers. Also buried here, in even greater numbers, are those important in our own lives: mothers and fathers, husbands and wives, daughters and sons, mentors and friends. With a new feature on our website, Mount Auburn has enhanced its mission to commemorate the dead using an online tool that celebrates the lives and preserves the memories of all who have come to be buried at the Cemetery.

A Few Tips:
+ Try a partial name search, when spelling is not known.
+ If the death date shown in the results is the same as the interment date, we may not have the date of death in our records, and the interment date is being duplicated.
+ To search for all individuals buried at the Cemetery with a specific surname, enter only the last name into the form.
+ Did you find an error in our records? Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
