There are many websites that can assist you in finding the grave site of your deceased relative. Depending on the information that you may know, you can search based on your deceased relative's location, their birthdate, city and state, or simply search through cemetery records for their name

Find out the city that your relative died in. Obtain a list of cemeteries in that city. Rule out cemeteries that do not mesh with your families religious beliefs. Start in concentric circles from the place of last residence of your relative and ask to see the burial records of the cemeteries in that city.

I would start with the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints genealogy web site. They have searched many cemeteries and public records to develop their genealogy libraries. Search the name of the person you are looking for, if they have that person listed they will have the location of the grave site.

You need to go to the County or district where the person was buried. Ask for their grave site records and churches who have grave site or private grave site records. When you get the record, you need to find the names of the person burried during the period they passed away.
