Missouri State Hospital Cemeteries

Missouri maintains five long-term psychiatric care facilities in these cities:

    St. Louis
    Farmington
    Fulton
    Nevada
    St. Joseph

Records of the cemeteries attached to four of these facilities are searchable in Ancestry Library Edition (Ancestry LE) via the U.S., Find a Grave 1600s-Current Day record collection.

You can search for specific individuals, or you can do a general search for persons interred in these cemeteries:

• SEARCH—DEATH—LOCATION Missouri, USA (Exact to this place) CEMETERY state hospital (Exact)

You can also search for persons interred in a particular cemetery:

• SEARCH—DEATH—LOCATION Farmington, St. Francois, Missouri, USA (Exact to this place) CEMETERY state hospital (Exact)

• SEARCH—DEATH—LOCATION Fulton, Callaway, Missouri, USA (Exact to this place) CEMETERY state hospital (Exact)

• SEARCH—DEATH—LOCATION Nevada, Vernon, Missouri, USA (Exact to this place) CEMETERY state hospital (Exact)

• SEARCH—DEATH—LOCATION Saint Joseph, Buchanan, Missouri, USA (Exact to this place) CEMETERY state hospital (Exact)

Because health records can be difficult to access due to privacy concerns, these death/burial records for asylum patients should prove extremely useful for persons with a hospitalized ancestor.

You can use Ancestry LE at Central Library or any of our branches.
