ESH: Cemetery Index

This list is primarily focused on patients who were buried in the Eastern State Hospital Cemetery or somewhere on the campus of the original hospital during its nearly two century history.

Please remember that this is a work in progress. Check back frequently as we will be updating this list on a regular basis.

Do you have questions about pre-1960 records of an ancestor while they stayed at Eastern State Hospital? Please contact us for more information.
