La-Cemeteries ©presents this unique one stop resource covering more than 7,900 cemeteries.  The most comprehensive data available for all 64 of Louisiana's parishes is presented in an engaging format.

We greatly appreciate the efforts of the hundreds who have spent their time in Louisiana cemeteries documenting our history. These wonderful people have unselfishly allowed their hard earned work to be published here or elsewhere on the internet.

Here is a unique presentation of Lafayette Cemetery 1 in New Orleans by Fred Hatfield. I greatly admire his work. Years ago we exchanged emails after I discovered his website. I recently tried to touch base and unfortunately found that he died in 2016. His is a great loss. He was very gifted, accomplished and is surely missed by many.

What's New

A visit to Savannah in 2019 naturally led to cemeteries. Laurel Grove is a beautiful, very large cemetery within Savannah. The Confederate Section has the remains of a large number of soldiers that did not survive the Battle of Gettysburg. Click to see the headstones of 29 Louisiana Soldiers and 3 Union Soldiers incorrectly buried in the Confederate Section.

THE BEYOND
It seemth such a little way to me
across to that strange country,
the Beyond, for it has grown to be
the home of those of whom I am so fond
and so for me there is no death
it is but crossing with abated breath
a little strip of sea, to find one's loved
ones waiting on the shore, more
beautiful, more precious than before.
