There are 41 cemeteries in Grundy County.

In the Fall of 2010 and Summer of 2011, all the cemeteries were walked and all the gravestones were photographed (ending up with nearly 20,000 photos). The photos have been uploaded to the Grundy Co. GPP website.

Some of the stones were very difficult to read and some are completely smooth, so unfortunately, some may be lost to time.

As many know, there is incorrect information inscribed on stones, obituaries can have misprints, etc. Please, if you find inaccurate information, send me and email so it can be corrected. Thank you!

A Pioneer Cemetery in the State of Iowa is defined as a cemetery “where there have been twelve or fewer burials in the preceding fifty years”.
