Our Burial Records
Genealogy and researching our ancestors have become popular activities for many of us, especially since today’s internet supports convenient exchange of family histories. Rockville Cemetery Association maintains information regarding known interments in Rockville Cemetery, dating back nearly 300 years. For privacy concerns, however, only specific information is shared for public knowledge regarding deceased individuals.
When seeking specific interment sites, it is most useful to know the exact spelling – or possible variations – of the full names of the deceased, including maiden or surnames for married individuals. Knowing the dates of birth and death is also helpful. This basic information will assist you with your search using this website.
Searching For Interments
RCA uses the FindaGrave.com website for the accessible recording of known burial sites. As interments occur in Rockville Cemetery, and if an entry does not already exist, RCA will routinely create a Memorial entry on this popular online website on behalf of the deceased. Whenever possible, RCA ensures that the following information is provided:
- Full names of the deceased
- Dates of birth, death, and burial
- Interment site or columbarium niche
- [If available] Known family (e.g. parents, spouses, children, etc.) and a photo of the grave monument.
