Cemeteries in Delaware
Cemeteries may be associated with churches, privately managed sites, and small family plots. No central resource of Delaware cemeteries exists that we are aware of, though several genealogical societies have ongoing transcription initiatives around the state. DGS has published transcribed cemetery records in the DGS Journal; check the DGS Journal Subject Index for details. Many more resources are provided in the Delaware Genealogical Research Guide.
The table below lists over 800 Cemeteries in Delaware and includes links to Find-A-Grave and Google maps, when available. Content for the table is currently being researched and updated by Bob Eckman (DGS Member) on an ongoing basis, so check back periodically for additions to the list.
