The Forest Hill Cemetery Association, 1830 Jefferson Avenue, Dunmore, Pennsylvania, has generously provided a transcript of those record books they have computerized. This information is the property of the Forest Hill Cemetery Association, and is for the use of individual researchers only. It may not be distributed in any form without their written permission.

The single grave records provided are from May 26, 1872, through December 1931. The burial lot records provided are from May 19, 1870, through December 1931. Because single graves were often reserved for family members at the time of death of one, some entries are dated much later. In some cases a person was moved from a single grave site to a family lot, or visa versa. The information provided here is for the original internment.

Most of the record books contained the burial permits and the undertaker certificates. For a few records, where there is conflicting information, the grave stone inscription has also been provided. Where there are question marks (??) the record could not be read.

Founders of the Forest Hill Cemetery:

Fields included are:

Last Name; First Name; Birth Date or Age; Place of Birth; Cause of Death; Sex; Notes (usually the cemetery where a body came from, or was moved to).
