Cemetery Administration

The County of El Dorado oversees the maintenance and operation of 18 cemeteries. However, there are over 100 cemeteries and burial sites in the county. Most are old pioneer cemeteries that have not had an interment in many years. In addition to the County-operated cemeteries, there are privately operated, fraternal, religious, and two District cemeteries. (See tabs for more information)

Plot sales are offered at some County-operated cemeteries. They include Georgetown-Renke Annex, Georgia Slide, Pilot Hill, and Placerville Union. The Renke Annex just installed new Veterans’ Niches and Placerville Union has crypts and niches available for sale. The County Operated Cemeteries Tab will give you a brief synopsis of each of the cemeteries overseen by the County Cemetery Administration.Image of graveyard
