Woodlawn Cemetery is owned and managed by the City of Terre Haute.


Woodlawn Cemetery is the oldest extant cemetery in Terre Haute, Indiana. After its establishment in 1839, families began removing remains from other local cemeteries to be re-interred in Woodlawn. In the years following its opening, the cemetery donated land for the establishment of Catholic and Jewish cemeteries. Several mayors of Terre Haute, along with other local notables, are buried in Woodlawn Cemetery.

Cemetery Records

Records linked below were acquired from the City of Terre Haute on June 8, 2023 from the city's website. These had been published in a PDF file. The PDF text was very tiny and difficult to read, moreover, there was a "Comments" column that bled off the page and was pushed down below the records. Also, the PDF mixed together records for both Woodlawn and Highland Lawn cemeteries.

We converted the PDF into HTML, relaligned the Comments column to match the records, and separated records by cemetery.

Note: these records include burials beginning in 1839 all the way up to December 10, 2012. After that date, the city has not made records available for public viewing.

Confederate Monument

The Confederate Monument is located at the intersection of Central and Wabash Avenues within Woodlawn Cemetery. Erected in 1912, the 11' tall granite monument commemorates 11 Confederate prisoners of war who died in a local prison and are interred in Woodlawn. The names of the Confederates are inscribed in bronze tablets attached to the monument. Ten of the 11 soldiers were members of Gantt's 9th battalion, Tennessee Cavalry.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
