If you have entered the cemetery name in the "Place" field of the Burial Fact:

Go to the Place Workspace
Find the cemetery in the list of places in the left panel.
Look at the people listed in the right panel that are buried in that cemetery.
Click on the Print icon in the upper right corner.
BE SURE to select the option for "in this place only" - or else FTM will start printing out everybody in your file!

This is the Place Report.

If you want the Custom Report, go to Publish > Custom Report and select how you want the report to look at the "what to include" button.
Then, "selected individuals"
Then, Filter In.
Then, Other Facts, Burial Fact, Place contains "text string" (if you put the cemetery name in the place field.) You may need to use the complete place name if the cemetery name is common, like "Fairview Cemetery". I think I currently have a dozen Fairview Cemeteries in various spots around the country in my file.


If you put the cemetery name in the Burial description field, you will need to filter on the Description field of the Burial fact.

The custom report will look different than the Places Report.

You can also use that similar filter at the bottom of the Index in the Family tab of the People Workspace.
