There's only one thing worse for a genealogist than finding that the cemetery inscription he or she needs has never been transcribed. And that is that it's been transcribed, but they don't know it. Hopefully the following list will help in that case. So get out those old death certificates and obits that listed the cemetery, and take a look at the work that some dedicated volunteers have already done for you.

Listed with each cemetery is the source material in which the headstone inscription can be found. In some cases there is more than one source; often this includes the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. If the source is not available to you locally be sure to verify the film number before ordering it from SLC. The vast majority of the hardcopy sources are available at the St. Louis County Library Headquarters location and the the main branch of the St. Louis Public Library. In a few cases there are other repositories listed where the inscription source can be found. Most of this "source" information came from Elizabeth Kot and Shirley Thomson's Missouri Cemetery Inscription Sources: Print and Microfilm (Vallejo, Calif.: Indices Publishing, 1995) via the Ancestry database web site. I've tried to update the more recent activity. If you see errors or omissions please let me know so that I can keep this list as up-to-date as possible.

The abbreviations that I used can be found at the end of this list.

This cemetery is now under the administration of St. Peter's Cemetery at 2101 Lucas and Hunt Road, St. Louis, MO 63121, (314) 385-0841. The cemetery office is very "genealogy friendly". All the records are computerized for both Bethany and St. Peter's. Turns out that Bethany Cemetery was handed over to St. Peter's Cemetery administration because it was not being maintained. Bethany Cemetery was affiliated with the Bethany-Peace United Church of Christ Church (11952 Bellefontaine Rd., St. Louis, MO 63138, (314) 741-9062). This church is still active.

NOTE ADDED FROM CHERIE 7/30/2007: "Dave, I finally found Gravois Saxton Cemetery and I wanted to let you know that it is not connected with Concordia Cemetery on Bates. Mike Pate at the cemetery told me that they have never been associated with Gravois Saxton - just New Saxton. My gggrandfather's certificate of death says he is at Gravois Saxton and he is in Western Evang. Lutheran Cemetery on Marcus and Lexington, behind Immanuel Evang.Lutheran Church.

NOTE ADDED FROM Pete Lessing 12/18/2012
I have an ancestor, named Bertha E. Segelhorst nee Lessing (or Lässig, or Laessig, or Lessig--last name was spelled a number of ways in different documents) who, according to St. Louis death records, was buried in Gravios Saxon cemetery. I have been trying to resolve the issue as to whether Gravois Saxon cemetery was Concordia cemetery or Western Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery. Most of the siblings and the mother of my ancestor I am trying to locate were definitely buried in Concordia cemetery, which was also called New Saxon cemetery. My g-g-grandmother, the mother of Bertha, who appears in St. Louis death records and was buried in New Saxon cemetery June 11, 1886 according to the St. Louis death records, is in the records of Concordia cemetery that were transcribed by the St. Louis genealogical society. In addition, some of Bertha's brothers and sisters were also buried in Concordia cemetery and appear in the Concordia cemetery records, with the exact plot numbers and sections in the cemetery. To further muddy the waters, Bertha died not long after she married Mr. Segelhorst at a young age of 22 years, in 1880. Mr. Segelhorst remarried and some of his children can be found in the records of Western Lutheran Evangelical cemetery, so I was inferring that perhaps Bertha was also buried in Western Lutheran Evangelical cemetery, however she does not appear in those records, nor does she appear in the records of Concordia cemetery. All I have is the annotation of Gravois Saxon cemetery from her St. Louis city death register entry. I have spent the past two or three years trying to determine whether Gravois Saxon was Western Lutheran Evangelical Cemetery or Concordia Cemetery, and after reading Cherie's note on your web site, I had thought the matter settled. Communications with the St. Louis Genealogical Society seem to confirm that it was Concordia however. I recently found a copy of the St. Louis municipal code online at Google Books. From this ordinance, you can see that in 1900 when the ordinance was passed, New Saxon and Gravois Saxon were considered one and the same cemetery, and it is known that Concordia cemetery was once known as the New Saxon cemetery. My great-great-grandmother, who appears in the St. Louis city death register (her name is Ernestine Wilhelmine Lessig), was listed as being buried at New Saxon cemetery in the St. Louis City death register. She definitely is listed in the Concordia cemetery records, which can be verified by searching the name "Lessig" at the Trinity Lutheran Church on-line database of Concordia cemetery records, and I have personally seen the original cemetery records at the St. Louis County Library on microfilm. I am inclined to believe that a more contemporaneous record such as this ordinance dated from 1900, only 14 years after the death of my great-great-grandmother and clearly naming. New Saxon and Gravois Saxon as the same cemetery is likely to be correct.

NOTE ADDED FROM LaVerne T. Boehmke 4/17/2013
Just a note to let you know that in the Fall of 2012 Immanuel Lutheran Church and Western Lutheran Cemetery in the city block of Marcus and Lexington were sold to a large active Baptist congregation. I don't know what plans they have for the cemetery. There are empty grave lots, but they would need city permission.

NOTE ADDED 1/2/2009): "We have continued to work in Picker's/Gatewood Cemetery and have made pretty good progress. All tombstones found in the older portion of Picker's/Gatewood (Southwestern side on Gravois) have now photographed and the images have been uploaded onto FindAGrave.com. Several sections from the newer portion (Northeastern side of Gravois) have also been completed and uploaded onto FindAGrave.com. There is also now a web site that has lot maps for most of the cemetery. URL: http://www.geocities.com/picker1855/ We have found 249 tombstone in the older BLOCK portion of the cemetery that are not included in the St. Louis City's online database (See http://stlouis.missouri.org/development/realestate/cemetery/). Over time I have scanned most of the burial logs for this cemetery and it is my opinion that there are many names that are not in the database that should be.. according to the burial logs and death records.

NOTE: From Greg Myers: "OLD " Picker Cemetery also called Picott Cemetery is long gone (operated from 1845 to 1898), it use to be where now Roosevelt High School is (Gravois & Compton & Wyoming up to about Arsenal & Compton over to Louisana & Arsenal and down to Louisana and Wyoming). Some bodies were moved to " NEW " Picker, others to other places, and some left. (I went to Roosevelt High School and once in awhile a human bone would surface in the football field over the years and also in some of the backyards of houses along Arsenal, I guess from the pressure of the activity and games above the remains .... worked them upward over the years). Most headstones were destroyed and used for the foundation, etc. "NEW" Picker now called GATEWOOD GARDENS is located right next to Saints Peter and Paul Cemetery (Catholic) at Gravois and Hampton. The records are hard to find, and care taker after care taker have been in trouble for not keeping to cotracts and upkeeping this cemetery. hope this helps .

NOTE: The following is a quote from St. Louis Post-Dispatch South Section by Joan Little, Reporter for the Post-Dispatch, February 3, 2000 "St. Louis officials would like to hear from people with family members buried at the Gatewood Gardens Cemetery on Gravois Avenue. And those who know they have relatives buried there but don't know the location may be able to find out. The cemetery is at 7135 Gravois. City officials are trying to account for all of the graves in Gatewood Gardens, which has had a troubled past. The authority is concentrating on trying to improve and update the cemetery's grave records, which were in some disarray, officials say. The task is somewhat daunting since the cemetery dates to at least 1877 and there are 20,000 graves in the city's records, says, Clay. People seeking information or those who have information about a grave at the cemetery may call the city at 622-3400 extension 244, says Clay".
