Dane County, Wisconsin Cemetery Records

Most of these are complete indices at the time of transcription, however, in some cases we list the listing when it is only a partial listing.

Madison, the capital of Wisconsin, is located in Dane County, in the south central part of the state. Among the resources on the city’s website is a burial records database for Forest Hills Cemetery. The land on which Forest Hills Cemetery lies was purchased by the city in 1857.

You will find links to a cemetery walking tour brochure and a map of the cemetery. The burials database includes 240 Union veterans as well as 140 Confederate prisoners of war who died at Camp Randall. There is a wealth of information in each individual’s record. To begin your search, click the Burial Records Search link. The database can be searched by last name of the deceased, by first and last name of the deceased, or by section and lot number. The data fields in the search results include name of the deceased, sex, race, grave number, date of birth, date of death, father’s and mother’s names, mother’s maiden name, place of birth and death, cause of death, occupation, funeral home, military service, grave location, purchase date, and lot owner’s name
