This cemetery began in 1850 and is the resting place for more than 31,000 people. The names and death dates on all Walnut Hill Cemetery Lot Cards through circa 1878 - 1992 appear on this website. See FAQs for more information.

Lot cards are a "modern invention", consequently, the earliest burials for which records exist will be found in the sexton's books, made available in August 2015 on the City of Belleville's website. Some headstone photographs are available through the SCCGS project if indicated.

This project is a memorial tribute to the men and women buried here, sponsored and funded by the St. Clair County (Illinois) Genealogical Society (SCCGS). SCCGS provides this work free of charge in fulfilment of one of its purposes - to preserve ancestral data. Use the search box on our SCCGS Home page to locate a particular burial.
