Iowa has a very large number of cemeteries and burial sites. Most cemeteries and burial sites are not required to register with the Iowa Insurance Division and some are exempt from the requirements and provisions of the Iowa Cemetery Act located at Iowa Code Chapter 523I. A cemetery classified as a perpetual care cemetery must file an annual report with the Iowa Insurance Division and they are examined at least once every five years regarding the perpetual care trust funds.
A list of perpetual care cemeteries that register with the Iowa Insurance Division can be found here or in the data set below.
