History of the cemetery

St. Paul’s cemetery has been part of St. Paul’s mission since 1876, even before St. Pauls had it’s own sanctuary. The 8-acre site is the chosen resting place of over a thousand people — both members and nonmembers of St. Paul’s.

Visit the cemetery

St. Paul’s cemetery is located at 605 12th St SE off E Bremer Ave. The cemetery is arranged into six blocks, numbered 0–5. Blocks are divided into lots with a range of one to six burial sites each.

 

If you need to locate a burial in the cemetery, contact the church office at life@stpaulswaverly.org or

Purchasing a burial site

Currently, new burial reservations are available in Block 5, shown in light blue on the map. The block is organized into 144 lots, each with room for four burials.

An individual may purchase single burial sites, or a family may purchase a group of adjacent sites.
Computerized records make selecting a burial site easy. You can visually select a location and quickly identify adjacent burials.
