Seeking Cemetery Bloggers

Do you visit cemeteries?

Do you blog about them?

I’m making a list of cemetery bloggers across the US and around the world.

Please comment below with a link to your blog — and the geographic area you specialize in, if you have one.

Let everyone get to know your work!

  1. Hi Loren,

    I really enjoy your blog and want to thank you for this opportunity to share mine!

    My blog “Gargoyles and Grotesques” features black and white photographs of gargoyles and grotesques, as well as other unusual carvings, sculptures, and statuary that I have discovered through out New England, Although I am not a primarily a cemetery blogger, roughly a third of my posts are of cemeteries, having visiting dozens and dozens in my local area and beyond in search of unusual gravestones and statuary.

    There is a cemetery near me that has been abandoned and neglected that I believe will be restored and maintained if made a portal/pokestop /gym this link is to the page and group I made for the cemetery with the latitude and longitude my hopes are for the link to be shared enough to get the attention of Niantic so that they will please help me raise awareness of this neglected historic landmark that is older than the state of Oklahoma before it is lost forever
    I have seen one other cemetery out here that was neglected be cleaned up and now maintained after becoming a pokestop

    I blog about cemeteries exclusively at:

    As I travel a lot the blog looks at cemeteries around the world. As a photographer I do have a little section at the end of each post that may be of use to people who visit cemeteries for photographic reasons (as I do), and I try to add practical information about how to get there, since it’s not always easy to find. I try to stick with a black and white theme, but occasionally colour gets in there when it is warranted.

    Hi Loren, I’m the author of “The Cemetery Traveler” blog:
    I’ve been writing this, based on my original on-site photography, since 2010. I’ve written about cemeteries all over the U.S. (and a bit in Europe). I do seem to favor the abandoned ones, though! Thank you.

  8. This is a wonderful idea! Looking forward to checking out all the cemetery blogs. I recently began blogging again after a few years break. The majority of my posts are about cemeteries in Southwestern Ontario, Canada.

  9. I have created and maintain the most unique story of all Chicago area cemeteries.
    With over 38,000 burials spanning some seventy years, it served as an institutional cemetery for the Cook County institutions. These consisted of the County Poor house and farm opened 1854, the Insane Asylum opened 1869, the infirmary opened 1882, and the Consumptive hospital (TB), opened 1899 and was the official Cook County potters field serving the poor and indigent of the county. The cemetery rapidly grew in size. It served as an institutional cemetery and more importantly, it served as the official county Potters Field for the unclaimed and unwanted dead of Chicago and Cook County. The cemetery received bodies from the Cook County Hospital, the city morgue, many Chicago area hospitals, and many city social institutions.

    There is a free searchable database currently of over 7000 forgotten people buried there.

    Hello Lauren,

    My name is Fred Beinke and I am extremely passionate about cemeteries. I visit them often and plan entire weekends around them. I’ve come across this post upon searching “Cemetery Blog” cause I’m bored at work and want to find new ones to visit.

    I live in Split Silk, GA which is between Athens and Atlanta. I recently acquired the books on Walton County cemeteries that list all know cemeteries, and their locations, as of 2001-ish? There are endless small family cemeteries in the middle of fields or overgrown woods scattered about the county. It could make an interesting blog!

    Not sure where I’m going with this. I’m not muuuch of a writer. I just love visiting cemeteries, learning the history, reading about the people buried there, appreciating the stones, the peace and quiet. I’m sure you know the deal, lol.
