About Burial Records:
The Land Reutilization Authority (LRA) acquired Gatewood Gardens Cemetery through tax foreclosure sale. Due to the nature of the acquisition we did not receive a complete set of records for the cemetery. SLDC, with the assistance of the St. Louis Genealogical Society, has been able to assemble a 90% complete collection of records.

The missing 10% of the records are located specifically in the old side of the cemetery, in blocks two and four. These graves are made up of single grave pauper burials. They have no markers or surviving caskets, and the records give no information as to how they are organized.

The completed portions of the records have been entered into a database which was created by cross referencing many sources. By consulting the logbooks, map books, lot owner books, lot cards, and deed books we have an accurate record of the cemetery. The database records have been sent to the St. Louis Genealogical Society [www.stlgs.org].
