Cemetery Tours

Cemetery tours


Cemetery Tours are held every May at the Murray City Cemetery for elementary schools. 

Other tours for adult or youth groups may be arranged by phoning Rowan Coates at 264-2589. 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.
