CemeteryFind overview

What is CemeteryFind?

CemeteryFind is a cloud-based cemetery records management and mapping solution from Bosscan.com, which allows cemeteries to scan and digitize their existing records, manage all existing and new records electronically in a single location, record lot sales and generate deeds, search burials, edit cemetery maps, and more. The Bosscan mobile scanning team offer on-site record scanning assistance to cemeteries, with the ability to scan ledger books, lot cards, burial cards, notes, deeds, maps, and other physical documents.

Cemetery records can be managed electronically in CemeteryFind’s database, with multiple data fields supporting the storage of dates of birth, death, and burial, burial types, cause and place of death, funeral director details, veteran status and associated military branch, burial cost, and additional notes. Scanned copies of documents can be attached to records along with graveside photos. Users can also create and print new burial records, and manage lot sales with deeds automatically completed by the system.

CemeteryFind’s cemetery mapping functionality allows users to identify burial locations by clicking on burial names, track sold and unsold lots through color-coding, and view the full cemetery and its surrounding region. Routes from the cemetery entrance to selected burials can be displayed to simplify navigation for visitors. CemeteryFind also offers free public access to burial records, maps, and navigation through public search pages, with ‘spell-assist’ burial name search.

Ease of Use, anywhere access

Pros
The biggest advantage is the cloud based platform. All f our records are now stored on site but also in a secure location where natural disaster, fire, flood or whatever might happen to our office, can't cause a loss of such vital documentation. The added benefit to the cloud based platform is being able to have anywhere access from my smartphone, which makes gathering information in the field a snap and saves time consuming and costly return trips to the office to gather information. Everything is at our fingertips anytime and anywhere now

Cons
The things that I haven't liked about the software i have voiced concerns about already and Cemetery Find actually altered the software to meet my particular concerns each time. Not being able to search by dates is the only unresolved issue, you can organize the list starting at the earliest or latest year but no search. They say that the several different date formats that we have in our records make it impossible to do, and that makes sense. It is still better than cards, which we could never search by anything but lot owner name.

I'm a cemetery trustee and our town has been using CemeteryFind for almost 5 years.

It took our management of our municipal cemeteries to the next step, from index cards and paper maps. It made our job as cemetery trustees so much easier because we can access the data from home, from work, etc. and not have to schedule a trip to Town Hall. It also gives us the opportunity to build on features the software supports as our budget can afford.

Pros
The subscription is online and I can access it anywhere with my iPhone or laptop if I have interment or cellular coverage. We have pdf maps of our cemeteries loaded which facilitates emailing information to families and funeral homes. When we started with CemeteryFind uploaded our data, doing the best they could to have it fit into the CF fields.

Cons
The ability to print of information appears to be limited, though I frequently make screen shot copies and paste them into a Word document when doing research. I could be I still do not know how to use all the attributes of the program.

Response from CemeteryFind


Additional print features are added to new accounts and we are going back to existing accounts to add them.

Valuable input. Thank you!

I have been using this for a few years now and love it

Pros
This software is user friendly for not only as an administrator but for the general public. The Funeral Directors also like this program for when they are with families wanting to know if there is room for another burial or just for a section and lot. I also like that I can keep sections like place of death and cause of death private from the general public. The support staff is always quick in responding and helping or fixing what I needed. They can also customize some of the fields to my specific needs. I would highly recommend this software.

Cons
Once in a while it runs slow when it is backing up. But other than that I haven't had any problems with the software or the support staff

By making burial data available online to the public, we save time for cemetery employees who typically supply this information by mail, and at the same time provide an easy and fast way for researchers to obtain the info they need.

Pros
It's very useful for individuals looking to confirm family members in a genealogical search.

Cons
The process of converting the scanned information from cemetery records and checking for transcription errors can be time consuming. Well worth it in the end though.

Very positive experience, from scanning the records to implementing the on-line mapping.

Pros
Easy to use, and Boston Computer Scanning staff is able to customize (when necessary) to fit Cedar Hill's needs. Our original paper records are now backed up on our file server, with a weekly copy kept off-site.

Cons
I don’t like that our on-line records were copied and published on Find-A-Grave. Neither Cedar Hill nor Boston Computer Scanning/CemeteryFind had given permission for anyone to use our records in this fashion.

Response from CemeteryFind


In 2016 we changed our public search to allow the public to search one burial name at a time so the entire list can no longer be copied.

We thank Cedar Hill Cemetery for bringing this to our attention.
