|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery is kept locked at the street entrance. You must go to the Human Services Center near Broadway and Wilson Road to be escorted by a security guard. Calling ahead is recommended (605-668-3102). The majority of the graves are marked only with the person's Patient Record Number on a small, concrete pillar. The few exceptions are a handful of graves where the family has replaced the concrete marker with a conventional headstone showing name, dates, etc.
The Human Services Center will allow photo volunteers to walk around the cemetery and take pictures but will not show them where specific graves are (or even show a map) without a written release from a relative of the patient. The only way for a photo volunteer and a photo requester to remain anonymous is for the requester to provide the Patient Record Number in the request.
