    The City of Jackson has two cemeteries, City Cemetery and Russell Heights.The older City Cemetery is located at the end of South High Street, extending west to South Missouri Street. Russell Heights, established in 1917, is located at 435 South Farmington Road.

    The Cemetery Department office is located in Russell Heights Cemetery. Office phone number is (573) 243-3651; hours are 8 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday. For plot purchase information, please call 573-243-3568 or visit City Hall, 101 Court Street.

    Cemetery personnel offer some reminders to visitors and family members and friends of those who are buried in either cemetery.

    • Arrangements and decorations will be removed the first week of March and the first week of October.
    • Deteriorated arrangements and decorations will be removed at the discretion of the Cemetery Personnel.
    • No other permanent structures, other than headstones and appropriately designed and associated components, are permitted on cemetery lots.
    • No benches or trees/shrubbery plantings are permitted on grave lots without written permission.

    An ongoing cemetery census and mapping project provides regularly updated lists for both cemeteries. Although great care is taken to ensure accuracy, omissions and errors may occur until the project is complete. The online census lists are updated weekly - Russell Heights Cemetery - Burials,  Russell Heights Cemetery - Deeds, and City Cemetery.

    Maps are also available and will be updated throughout the course of the project - Russell Heights Block Map and Old City Cemetery Map

    Please contact cemetery@jacksonmo.org to report any discrepancy.
