This is a listing of all currently known persons that were laid to rest in Central State Hospitals two cemeteries, Strawberry Hill and Peace on Earth. It is believed that Strawberry Hill is the older of the two, as Peace on Earth is listed as being used in the late 1960’s shortly before the discontinuation of burials on the hospital grounds. This listing is constantly being updated as new information is found.
This list is in alphabetical order so click on “A” for surnames that begin with that letter and so on. Also be sure to scroll both vertically and horizontally to access all of the information in the index.
Note: Entries highlighted in blue have been cross-referenced with available Central State Hospital death ledgers. Entries in red have been cross-referenced with both the hospital death ledgers and on hand Kentucky death certificates. They have been updated as correctly as possible.
