Milwaukee County Cemeteries

Burials and Interments


Most all of the cemeteries below are incomplete. Many of them contain only a brief history of the cemetery. I have done my best to sort out the information on the cemetery as I find information. Some of the cemeteries listed may have an alternate name that is listed somewhere else. As I piece together the information I will make corrections and additions.

The History of Milwaukee, Wisconsin contains a section on the histories of the larger Milwaukee cemeteries. It has been transcribed here and is also linked to the individual cemeteries.

As I obtain burials for each location, I will add them to the listing. If you have any obituary or cemetery information you would like to contribute, please email me.

When referring to a cemetery please include the number as well as the name as here are a number of the same or similar name cemeteries.

(103) Potter's Field, Alms House; Paupers Cemetery
Notes: The Milwaukee "County Farm" Cemetery (a.k.a. Potter's Field) was used during the years 1872-1929. This cemetery was used for the poorhouse inmates and also for burial of other indigent people and transients for whom no funds were available for burial. (The cemetery may have been in use prior to 1872. However, there is no documentation of burials occurring before 1872.) Due to the fact that there are nearly 6,400 names in the burial register book this site is far from complete. It is a work-in-progress.
History and Articles on Milw. Almshouse
The Wisconsin Old Cemetery Association claims the poor house cemetery was in use as early as 1862.
