The Burial Book

Download or view the  Rest Lawn Burial Book here. It's organized alphabetically, by last name, followed by the Garden, Section, Block and Space of the burial. It's over eighty pages long and contains the records of over 3,700 burials. 

You can see the gardens on the maps at this link: https://www.restlawnonline.com/maps/

Warning: This cemetery has been creating rows and spaces for almost 170 years so the organization doesn't always make sense at first. We have stakes with row numbers that correspond to the grave spaces on the map and that should help some, but the original numbering system was unique, and subsequent cemetery managers got creative, as well!

Please note: Due to the age of the cemetery and the state of early record keeping, not all burials may be recorded here. In 2003, the first burial book was compiled by Otilya Lay and members of the Oregon Genealogical Society, based on MARKERS in the cemetery. All interments in the cemetery's records are present as of 1996. Prior to that date, burials may not be listed if the family has failed to place a marker. The current cemetery ownership is in the process of completing the burial book record as time and resources are available.
