There are many ways to locate a grave at the Mesa Cemetery:
- Patrons can call or visit the Cemetery office to obtain a map and directions to a specific grave. Office hours are 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday, except City holidays. Maps can also be provided through mail, e-mail or fax.
- More than 30,000 graves at the Mesa Cemetery can be found on www.findagrave.com.* This project is a continuing effort and our appreciation goes to volunteers at the Mesa Family History Center. We also appreciate the efforts of numerous Boy Scout eagle projects and various other volunteering projects for their efforts in photographing monuments to be shared on the internet.

Gravesites are identified by a three part code that indicates block, lot and space number, as in the following example: 888 (block) 2 (lot) 3 (space)
First, locate the block, using the Cemetery Block Map [PDF]. On the Cemetery grounds, look for the round marker specifying the block number.
Next, find the lot and grave space. Each block is comprised of four to five lots; and each lot is comprised of six to eight grave spaces, laid out in the following configuration:
Blocks 1125 and above
Blocks 1124 and below
