Mendon, Utah Cemetery —
The Mendon, Utah Cemetery Index is composed of partial data sets from my personal cemetery database records. I created the bulk of the information here, during my lot-by-lot, plat-by-plat physical survey and inventory of the Mendon City Cemetery. This project took me some four years to complete, beginning in early 1993 and finishing up in late 1997. In order to make sense of this whole information overload, I had to create a map and companion Mendon Cemetery PAF file, which grew to over twelve thousand, individual record names. I have used this PAF file to supplement the data of the 1081 individual records, in the Mendon Cemetery Index. I share with you here then a blend of the fruits of my labor, in this Mendon Cemetery Index.

How to Find the Mendon Cemetery
The entrance to the Mendon, Utah Cemetery begins at approximately 25 North 200 West, and is marked with a small city sign. Coming into Mendon on State Highway 23, from either the north or south, there are nice big brown State Highway information signs directing you to the cemetery. From Hwy 23 (the same as 100 West) travel one block west on Center Street, and turn right. Just ahead is a small sign on your left, directing you up the hill on the paved road. Mendon's Pioneer Park sits just below the cemetery and has a wonderful three person bronze sculpture as a center piece. William (Bill) Hill of our fair city created this amazing piece of art, depicting the pioneers first arriving in Mendon during the early spring of 1859. This is a wonderfully quite place to eat a picnic lunch and or to view those most beautiful Mendon Mountains. If you liked Bill's work in Pioneer Park, there is a five person bronze sclupture on the Tabernacle grounds, in Logan, Utah you might enjoy as well.
Mendon Cemetery Conventions
- There are no data set records for I, U and X, as there are no interments with last names starting with those letters.
- Lots that are listed as 000 for a location, have an unknown placement.
- I have changed the underline designator that I had used to denote the maiden names of married women in the various data sets, to pink text. Look at this record for an example: Hazel Muir Sorensen.
- Married women with multiple last names by marriage are not always listed by who they were known as last. This cemetery index has been created with a “Mendon” slant. As an example, look at "Lois Hardman Kidman Layne," she is listed with the K's under Kidman, but with Layne in the last name column.
- In all of the data set headers, the column "sex" has been replaced by G, which I now use to denote Gender.
- The format of the Gender column is as follows: Male, Female and Unknown.
- A date stamp has been placed at the bottom of all Mendon Cemetery Index pages.
So, please enjoy your time with the information shared here, I wish you the best of luck with your family history or genealogy project. I hope that this Mendon Cemetery Index can be of help to you and your family in someway…
