The Gate of Heaven is located at the southwest corner of Wyoming N.E. and Paseo del Norte N.E. It is 3 miles east of the I-25 freeway and Paseo del Norte exit.

Gate of Heaven is Catholic Cemetery owned and maintained by the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was dedicated in late 1965 by the Archbishop and Monsignor of the Santa Fe Archdiocese. I have not found out the exact acreage involved, but my husband estimates it at 2 acres.

The Cemetery has a large Catholic Chapel, indoor mausoleum as well as several patio crypts. I logged just over 5000 graves, and most feel that is pretty accurate. There is about 30% more spaces available (developed) with another 10,000 that could be developed in an adjacent site.

I transcribed these graves over a period of three months. The listing is complete, as of 10/31/2001.

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.
