There is no one complete transcription of all the cemeteries in the county. We do have many books on individual cemeteries; some are listed below. Search our Catalog by doing a Subject search for Cemeteries. Also try a Keyword search for the name of the cemetery.
Also, we have collections of cemetery inscriptions, done at different times and with varying degrees of coverage. Some cemeteries have been transcribed more than once. Below is a list of books, each with an identification code. It is followed by a list of cemeteries and the code(s) for the book(s) they are found in.
N. B. The transcriptions of these cemeteries often differ. It's best to look at all of them as graves may have been lost or become illegible over the years.
Many gravesites are being posted online.
Cemeteries can be difficult to locate. The Key to Gaston County Cemeteries [call # 929.509756773 Key NCC] serves as an index to a large map compiled in 1998. The map itself is on two sheets and is kept in the North Carolina Room at Gastonia Main.
Also Cemeteries of Gaston County, North Carolina [call # 929.3 Cem NCC] lists many cemeteries and names the USGS quadrangle map on which the cemetery is located.
