Coventry   Cemetery description information

Book Published
A book is now available for Coventry. This book is the product of four years of research gathering all early cemetery transcripts and visiting each cemetery to check existing data and add new records. 68 previously unregistered cemeteries were found and recorded for this book. It presents 18,325 gravestone inscriptions in 193 historical cemeteries with 34 ancestor gravestone photographs. There is a regular index of names and a separate maiden name index. All of the crudely inscribed fieldstones that mark the graves of the earliest settlers have been documented and sketches of each one are included in the book. Research has been done in the town probate records to identify many of these stones that often have nothing more than initials and death date. Dozens of previously unknown gravesites have been identified in this way.

Currently, 197 of the estimated 200 cemeteries in Coventry have been registered. 18.323 of the estimated 18.400 gravestones have been entered into the database. Coventry is considered to be 100% complete.
