If you’ve ever searched BillionGraves for your local cemetery and found that it isn’t in our database or the information is incorrect, here’s how you can change that!

How to add a cemetery to BillionGraves from the website:

1. Make sure someone has not already added the cemetery to the database. You can do this by searching for that cemetery (using location in the search will be very helpful) on the search page. This will ensure there are no duplicate cemeteries.

2. Click on the “Tools” tab and click “Add Cemetery.”

Add Comp 13. Add in the cemetery name and location.

Add Comp 2
Enter in the cemetery’s full name and the Lat/Lon coordinates.
Add Comp 3
If you don’t have the Lat/Lon, you can click on the box below it which will bring up a place to add a street address

5. Verify the cemetery location on a map. From here, you will be able to drag around the pin to place it right where the cemetery is on the map.

Add Comp 46. Verify the information you have and then click “Submit Cemetery.”  Once you submit it, one of the BillionGraves team members will double check that it’s in the right spot and approve it.
