Cemetery Census is a volunteer website with the goal of surveying cemeteries in North Carolina and Virginia. Some of the listings contain photographs of grave markers. Access to the listings and photos is free. The site also requests you consider sharing your cemetery surveys for listing.  Listings are available by cemetery location and there is an alphabetical index of all burials.

The link for Mecklenburg County is http://cemeterycensus.com/nc/meck/index.htm

The North Carolina Digital Collections has an Historical Records Survey of North Carolina available from the Works Projects Administration. Included in these records are cemetery tombstone records that were compiled in the 1930’s. Below is a list of the cemeteries and surnames appearing in the Mecklenburg County compiled records, which you can find at this link. Other counties are also available.

Please keep in mind there may be errors or mistakes in the original transcriptions but the records are valuable nonetheless.
