          Jack,

           

          Who are you seeking, depending on dates some have been added to third party-websites and are availble for viewing. Do you have a name or DOB, and place of birth.

            The National Archives at St. Louis has several series related to the recovery of and internment of remains.  These records cover a period from 1915 to just after Vietnam.  While these records largely relate to service members, there are some civilian with records - particularly in the WWI Burial Files: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/595318

             

            To order a WWI Burial File or an Individual Deceased Personnel File, please provide as much of the following information as possible to stl.archives@nara.gov :

            Full name at time of service

            Service Number

            Date of Death

            Branch of Service

            Any additional information such as unit, home state, beneficiaries, etc. will be used to verify the identity of the individual.

             

            Please note that a portion of the WWII and Korean era Army records (covering the end of the alphabet) are still in the custody of the Army at this time.

              Dear Mr. Betz,

               

              Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

               

              We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Records Regarding Interments and Disinterments at Cemeteries Located at Abandoned Military Installations, 1874 - 1947 in the Records of the Office of the Quartermaster General (Record Group 92) by using the search term “interment” that may include the reports you seek. We also searched using the term “burials” and located 19 series in Record Group 92 for the 1940s-1970s, including the WWII weekly burial reports in the General Correspondence Relating to Places (part of the 19 series listed above) that are arranged by theater and then chronologically by week/numerically by numbered week. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov.

               

              Lastly, there are the Individual Deceased Personnel Files (IDPFs). IDPFs from 1940-1976 for personnel with surnames that begin with A-L are in the custody of the National Archives at St. Louis (RL-SL), P.O. Box 38757, St. Louis, MO 63138-1002. For access to these records, please contact RL-SL via email at stl.archives@nara.gov.
