If it is at a church, you can give it the name of the church. Ex. Ford Baptist Church Cemetery


If it is on a street you can give it the name of the street.  Ex. High Street Cemetery


If it is remote and there are no signs find the oldest grave in the cemetery  or if it looks like the same repeating last name give it that name. Example: Ezra Wood Cemetery or Wood Family Cemetery. 

I have a death cert. which indicates a cemetery. Cannot find the cemetery or headstone

@kdubud  The cemetery for Eva Ernst is Chapel Hill Cemetery near Mountain View, Missouri.  Here it is in our database:  https://billiongraves.com/cemetery/chapel-hill/312079

AYoung,

Thank you. could not find a marker for my Grandmother Eva Elizabeth Randall or her 3 year old daughter Barbara Jean Randall in this cemetery even though each of their death certs indicate they are buried in Chapel Hill Cemetery. Again, I thank you for your help. It means a lot for me.

@kdubud- They are most likely in an unmarked grave. This is the case for many of my family members as well. You can always make paper headstones with dates of birth and death in that cemetery and take a photo with the app.  Then place the death certificate in as an image. Here are some example of a paper stones. I don't have any death certificates because they had died before hand. However, their obituary states they are buried in this cemetery.
