Elkhart launches website with locator search for city cemeteries

ELKHART, Ind. -- The city of Elkhart has launched a new website that will provide the burial location of anyone in the city's three cemeteries - Grace Lawn, Prairie and Rice.

The project was a collaboration between the cemetery department and the GIS team from Public works.

The website allows you to search for a loved one by name and you will be shown a map with their exact burial location.

“When people visit one of our cemeteries, they often need the assistance of cemetery staff to locate their loved one. This website will allow visitors at any time to easily and independently locate the burial site of their loved one. I am so impressed with the work done by our cemetery and GIS team to provide this elevated level of service to our cemetery guests,” Mayor Rod Roberson said in a press release.

The people involved in the project include: Charlie Choate, Cemetery Director; Hannah Colburn, Cemetery Coordinator; Matt Heineman, GIS & Records Manager; and GIS Technicians Dominic Lucito and Gio Alvarez.
