Burial Index

Submitted by the Hancock County Genealogical Society


This index was compiled by the Hancock County Genealogical Society. From 1981 thru 1986 all 26 cemeteries in Hancock County were walked and the gravestone information recorded. Working with this base information the Society then borrowed the cemetery and church burial records when available to get a complete as possible listing of burials. Information for some cemeteries have been updated every few years using the cemetery burial records. Through the years, much of the information for this index has been compiled using county records, state records, newspapers, family genealogies, county histories, funeral home records and other available resources. Many names have various spellings, the name is spelled as found on the gravestone.  The female entries have been cross referenced from maiden name to married name when available


This is an ongoing works in progress, and due to missing or incomplete records, there are many deaths and burials not recorded in this index. Photos of gravestones for many burials may be found on the IAGenWeb Iowa Gravestone Photo Project.  A Hancock County index to gravestone photos has been compiled and there is also a linked SURNAME index for the Gravestone Photo Project.  For additional information, if available, contact the Hancock County Genealogical Society Do not contact the township trustees or cemetery sextons for information There are over 28000 entries in this index.
