Since most individuals were buried in unmarked graves, hospital officials used a grid pattern and designated gravesites by their distance from stone markers placed at the end of each row. The 'Location' is the distance in feet and inches from the eastern marker west to the gravesite.

The 'Notes' column transcribes other information as it appears in the cemetery registry.

The 'Register #' field refers to additional information about the patient found in large bound volumes. Portions of this information (name, age, sex, nativity, admittance dates) are available to the public. Only familial relations of deceased patients and living former patients can request information from the file. Under KSA 65-5603, only genealogical information on deceased patients--NOT THE DIAGNOSIS--may be released. Forms are available from the reference staff, and requests are subject to reference fees.
