A 150+ year-old historic cemetery faced a significant challenge: it had no records or maps of its burial sites. This lack of documentation left the caretakers unsure about the availability of space for new burials, raising concerns about the preservation of the cemetery’s heritage and the respect due to those interred.

Sentry Mapping Services stepped in with a comprehensive approach to solve the cemetery’s challenges. Utilizing advanced Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) technology, the team meticulously scanned the entire area to locate unmarked graves. This thorough investigation was followed by the creation of a detailed map that not only marked every known burial but also included names, birth and death dates, creating a rich tapestry of the cemetery’s history. To complement this, Sentry Mapping provided a clickable and searchable web map, making navigation and management effortless for the caretakers—all at no additional cost.

Thanks to Sentry Mapping’s expertise, the cemetery now has a clear understanding of its layout and capacity for future burials. This newfound knowledge ensures that every inch of sacred ground is used respectfully and efficiently, honoring the memory of those at rest. Moreover, the digital tools provided have secured the cemetery’s heritage for future generations, making it easier for families and historians to connect with their past. The once uncertain terrain of the cemetery is now a carefully mapped and cherished space, its legacy preserved and its management streamlined.

Sentry Mapping surveyed and mapped three cemeteries in our small community. It was amazing how many unknown graves were found, many dating as far back as the 1800s. The older cemeteries had rocks and pieces of wood for grave markers that had been moved or lost over the years. With the help of Sentry Mapping our community was able to put a permanent marker where each grave was located. We were very pleased with Sentry Mapping. They did a fantastic job and I would recommend them to anyone who needs this service.

We hired Sentry Mapping to locate my great-grandfather’s grave which was without a marker for more than 100 years. Due to a lack of cemetery documentation, our new memorial was placed in his guardian family’s plot; however, we could not rest until we were sure we had found his actual resting place. Sentry Mapping located Fred and the cemetery now recognizes his burial in their documents. It is a huge relief to know we got it right! His life needed this celebration, and we needed the peace of closure. Thank you so much, Benton, we truly appreciate all that you did for our family!
