We hold cemetery tours for schools each May. Our 2018 Cemetery Tours for schools will be held May 21-24. Murray Cultural Arts will cover the cost of buses for one grade level per public school within Murray City boundaries. Teachers are responsible for reserving buses for their classes.
Other tours for adult or youth groups may be arranged by phoning Lori Edmunds at 264-2620. Non-school groups are responsible for their own transportation to and from the cemetery. Tours may include a history of the Murray Cemetery, burial customs, and brief stories of people buried there.
If you wish to search for a grave site in the Murray City Cemetery, you may use our online Cemetery Search tool. Cemetery burial information for all Utah cemeteries may also be obtained through the state burial database at www.history.utah.org.
2018 Cemetery Tours for Schools
Our Cemetery Tours where held May 21-24th. We had the privilege of greeting 19 school classes at the Murray City Cemetery, where we learned about Cemetery Etiquette, Epitaph writing, and heard a few stories from those who are buried there. We appreciate the Cemetery staff, teachers, parent volunteers, and our storyteller volunteers for their help in making this activity a success for the children.
