Have you tried the Cemetery Lookup to search for your relatives who may be buried in Keene? Existing interment records have been formatted into a searchable database. Records date back to the late 1700’s and include entries from the nine municipal cemeteries in Keene that the department is responsible to maintain.
Please be aware that database entries have been taken from both handwritten and typed lot and interment cards, and may include either factual or typographical errors. They also may be incomplete, and are frequently updated. Should you notice an error, please contact the department at 603-357-9829 and we will research your concern.
Also available on the cemetery section of the website are maps (some better than others) of most of the nine cemeteries (maps here). As you look for your ancestors, these will help orient you in each cemetery. We hope this makes your genealogic research easier. Office staff members are available weekdays from 9 am to 4 pm to answer questions or you may send an email by using this link.
Keene's nine municipal cemeteries are maintained by KPRD. The department schedules burials, keeps the cemeteries mowed and updates cemetery records. Office staff are available to help with researching your ancestors.
