Have you ever been frustrated and overwhelmed when trying to locate a gravesite at a cemetery?
College Station’s cemeteries cover a combined 76 acres and contain more than 14,000 graves. Those numbers can be daunting when you visit a departed loved one or friend.
Thanks to the wonders of technology, those days are over.
The Parks and Recreation Department has unveiled an online grave locator that allows you to quickly find specific graves or deeded lots at the College Station Cemetery or the Aggie Field of Honor and Memorial Cemetery.
All you need is a smartphone or computer to navigate the locator through cstx.gov/cemeteries or these direct links:
All you need to do is enter your loved one’s last name and select the first name from a drop-down list. If you have the location enabled on a cellular device, you can track where you are at the cemetery in relation to the grave.
The Memorial Cemetery kiosk area offers a detailed guide on using the apps, including QR codes you can scan to access the grave locator application.
The system also color-codes the plots — blue indicates interred graves, green denotes available plots, and brown highlights spots that have been purchased but not interred. The database is updated weekly.
We hope the streamlined process makes your visit to our beautiful city cemeteries easier and more pleasant. For more information, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 979-764-5049.
