Geneva Launches New Online Cemetery Maps
People seeking information about Geneva’s two cemeteries can now access a public information map on the city’s website.
During the past several years, the city has been compiling data from both Oak Hill and West Side cemeteries regarding burials, lot ownership and plot availability to post online. Map users can search for relatives by last name or zoom in on the map to view particular sections and information about the cemetery.
- Oak Hill Cemetery, 799 Bennett St., has more than 4,500 people interred. About 600 lots are available in sections R, W and Z.
- West Side Cemetery has reached capacity with more than 1,000 people buried at 301 Stevens St.
Geneva’s cemetery information can be found under the “City Government” tab and selecting the Public Works Department on the city’s website at www.geneva.il.us. Then click on “cemetery” and look for the subhead “Online Maps.” There you’ll see the links for Oak Hill and West Side cemeteries.
People also can call the Geneva Public Works Department at 630-232-1502.
