How To Find A Grave
Search the cemetery database for the section of the grave location. Each “Plot” is numbered and typically contains six graves. The grave spaces are numbered 1-6 from North to South and the marker is typically at the Head, thus the term “Headstone”.
Hints – Here at Quincy Memorial Park, usually, but NOT always, the following apply:
- The Wife is most often ODD numbered, the Husband EVEN. • In the sections to the West (Faith, Peace, Devotions) – the wife is typically on the right and the headstone is read facing West.
- In the remaining Sections – the wife is on the left and the stone is read facing East.
- These are not steadfast rules, but rather helpful hints.
- On occasion, grave placement is sometimes determined by familial ties, i.e., sisters wanting to be near each other, fathers and sons wanting to be placed side-by-side, and in the instance of a child who passes young, they are sometimes placed at the foot of one of its parent’s space or even in- between the parents.
