The Family History Library has a good collection of cemetery records from West Virginia. These are listed in the Family History Library Catalog under each specific county.
The West Virginia Historical Records Survey compiled the Cemetery Readings in West Virginia in 1939 and 1940. (Family History Library films 250207-10). This is a large collection of cemetery descriptions, locations, and tombstone inscriptions. These records are described in the Family History Library Catalog under each county. The original documents are at the West Virginia University Library.
An important collection of cemetery records for Harrison County and some adjacent localities is also at the Family History Library (Family History Library films 163926-31). The original records are part of the Guy W. Tetrick collection.
The West Virginia State Archiveshas a partial card index to tombstone inscriptions. The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) collection (described in West Virginia Genealogy) also contains numerous cemetery records.
