Western State Hospital

Not sure how many are looking for info on burials at Western State, but I've been working on a list for about a year. I've added all the names found buried there to findagrave. Last year I was given a list of those buried there from the 1920s-1960s. Unfortunately none of the graves are marked, the original wood markers were destroyed in a fire and the stone markers were moved to make mowing easier, but never returned to the proper grave. I found at least 1 name on the hospital list that there is no death certificate for, a still-born child in 1959.

I'm doing the same thing for the other state hospitals in Kentucky including Eastern State Hospital, I'm president of a preservation group working with the state on that one.
