Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis, Indiana

The website for Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis, Indiana was very helpful in researching the Wright and Hammond biographies of the previous post. It includes an on-line Burial Locator. Crown Hill Cemetery has been in existence since 1864. Additionally, they have on-staff genealogists. For $5.00, they will provide whatever information that they have on an individual and a map and listing of others buried in the same lot. For Worth Wright, this included a burial permit, the equivalent of a death certificate. For $10.00, except in the winter, they will provide a color digital photo of a headstone or monument. Additional pictures on the same lot are only $2.00 each. I found Crown Hill Cemetery to be a very useful and inexpensive resource!
