City Cemetery, 1881-1950's 

Ledger volumes recording burials in the City Cemetery on Hart Island, a.k.a. "Potter's Field."

The ledger records the name of the deceased, date of death, date of burial, place of death, cause of death, and place of burial (trench and grave number). These records are not indexed. Stillborn and premature baby deaths are recorded separately.


The ledgers have been microfilmed (this series is not available for inter-library loan). The entries are arranged chronologically; they are not indexed by name.
