Lehi City Cemetery – Utah

Established in the mid-1850’s, the Lehi City Cemetery is larger than 30 acres. Over 12,000 burials have taken place in it.
The cemetery layout can be clearly seen In this screen capture from Google Maps

Lehi City has posted a full map of the cemetery and listings of the current burials with the grave coordinates on their site for download.
Visitors are greeted with ‘Welcome’ upon entry into the cemetery from the south gate.  Click to enlarge photos.

Also located near the south gate entry is a gazebo that houses a map of the cemetery and a list of burials by name and cross-referenced to coordinates on the map.

The map is large, but you’ll still need to look closely to read the writing due to the size of the cemetery.  North is at the top.  A book listing the burials is on a stand in front of the map.

Immediately to the north of the gazebo is a monument dedicated in remembrance of all those buried there.

Below are various views of the cemetery.
Looking north from the west side of the cemetery just above the south east-west road.

In the north west section looking west – southwest.  Samuel and Linda Hammer tombstone in the foreground for reference.

From the same location looking south west.

West side above the east-west road looking toward the ‘Saddle’ above Alpine to the north east.

From the same location looking slightly farther south towardAmerican Fork Canyon.

From the north west quarter of the cemetery looking south east.

From the same location looking slightly more easterly toward the intersection of the west road and the third east-west road north of the south entry.

From the same location looking due east.

Again from the same location looking slightly north east towardAmerican Fork Canyon.  See canyon photos here and here.

Yet again from the same location looking toward the north west corner of the cemetery.  If you have downloaded the city burial list, the closest tombstone in this photo is that of William Ball and his wife.

From the same location looking due west.

I have posted all of the tombstone photos that I’ve taken in the cemetery on Find-a-grave.
The majority of the burial records can also be found on the State of Utah – Cemetery and Burials Database site.
