Bell County Texas Genealogy and History


Welcome to the Cemetery Central page for Bell County, Texas.  With this site, we have made an effort to organize in one place all resources and tools helpful in researching the cemeteries of our county.  If you have any suggestions or corrections for this page, please contact TXBELL assistant coordinator Jody Dillard.

At this time, we have over a hundred cemetery inventories available to browse in the archives.  We've had some great volunteers assisting with this valuable project to make these valuable resources FREE to any Bell County researchers.  If you would like to inventory or transcribe a cemetery, start a cleanup project, or submit headstone photos, contact Jody!
