Many long-time residents of Stansbury Park have shared their desire to be buried at Stansbury Park. Realizing this, a small group of dedicated residents worked for years to find a location and funding for the proposed cemetery. Finally, in 2011, the Tooele County Commissioners committed to the project by donating seven acres of county-owned land, next to Benson Grist Mill.
With the location secured, Stansbury Service Agency began the work of designing and constructing the cemetery in 2012. A large portion of the landscaping was provided by local residents, who donated hundreds of hours to the project.
After a year of design and construction, the cemetery was ready for use and the first plots were sold in January of 2013. The first burial took place in April of 2013.
Burial plots are available to both residents and non-residents. Residents receive a discounted price because the cemetery is subsidized by the tax dollars of residents who live within the boundaries of Stansbury Service Area.
