|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Approximately 1,500 people are buried in the Northern State Cemetery while there is only one tombstone. Since the hospital closed, the blocks that identified the deceased patients by initials only have been removed. Most records pertaining to burials were lost when the hospital closed.
A crematorium was in use from 1913 to about 1955, after which the hospital contracted with local crematoria and the facility at the hospital was dismantled. When NSH was closed, there were 204 containers of cremated remains stored in the morgue. The morgue attendant had never gotten around to burying them, the unclaimed ashes were buried at Hawthorne cemetery in Mount Vernon
