Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Register of Burial at the Milwaukee County Poor Farm documented burials beginning in 1882 with the last entry listed in 1974.

The original Burial Book is now at the Milwaukee County Historical Society. It is not generally available to the public. Copies of the records are available on fiche for researchers at that location.

At this time the number of memorials on Find A Grave reflect only a small percentage of the total names in the Burial Book.

As of Feb 2013 a complete copy of the burial book can be found at the Wauwatosa Historical Society, 7406 Hillcrest Drive. Wauwatosa, WI 53213. Phone: 414-774-8672. They welcome research inquiries.
