Cemetery Records & Cemetery Directory

In 2002, a cemetery directory was installed at the Washington City Cemetery. It was placed in honor of Ben Brungardt, a lifelong Washington citizen who worked as the cemetery sexton for many years.

The directory is lighted, and features rotating drums, which hold the listings of each individual buried in the cemetery.

Records of burials at the Washington City Cemetery can be obtained at Washington City Hall, 301 C Street, Washington, KS.  

Requests for records, or requests for corrections to Cemetery records, may be submitted by contacting City Hall via phone or email.

Please note: The cemetery directory is updated on a biennial basis (every two years).
