Elgin Latin Cemetery

The Elgin Latin Cemetery is located at 305 Ochoa St., in Elgin, Bastrop County, Texas 78621 The Cemetery was formed because of the need to serve the residents of Elgin Texas. Initially, it was established to serve only the residents of Hispanic descent but currently all persons are allowed to be buried in the Elgin Latin Cemetery. The Cemetery was formed in the 1940’s by a group of persons who realized the need for such a cemetery. At first, the cemetery had only a small area, less than an acre, that was usable. Later, another piece of land was purchased because of the increasing demand of the Hispanic population. Finally, in the 1970’s, a larger portion of adjoining land was secured and the Cemetery reached it’s present size of 10 acres. There have been about 600 burials at the Elgin Latin Cemetery. Of these, about 70 are veterans of the United States Armed Forces. A granite monument to these veterans has been dedicated and is located underneath the Cemetery flagpole. The Cemetery is divided into 4 sections, each separated by a roadway: Sections A, B, C, and D. In addition to the four sections, there is an Infant area that contains about 23 Infant graves. The Cemetery has been registered as a 501 C (13) entity, non-profit organization and is eligible to receive donations. Because of the regulations governing this non-profit designation, only those persons who are owners of Cemetery plots and spaces can be members of the Cemetery Association. The Cemetery has historically only had one caretaker at a time but in 2004, The Elgin Latin Cemetery Association was formed in order to better serve the community and the cemetery. The Association governing committee consists of a President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Additional directors can be appointed in order to fulfill the needs of the Cemetery. The Cemetery derives its operating and maintenance funds from the sale of cemetery plots and spaces. Information, such as pricing, on the available family plots and individual spaces is listed elsewhere on this website. As in any other organization or group, there are rules that need to be followed by all members of the public and the Cemetery Association. The most significant and important of these are also listed elsewhere on this website.
