This project is for those buried in Violet Hill Cemetery, Perry, Dallas County, Iowa.

Violet Hill Cemetery is on the north side of the town of Perry. To reach the cemetery, take 1st street to Park St, and continue to the cemetery.

It is divided into two sections by 8th Street which goes north and south through the middle, making two distinct parts. The west side has a burial dated 1849, Welcome H. Willis but it is though that this is memorial rather than an actual burial. It was in the late 1860's before other burials are listed. There were no burials on the east side until about 1925.

It is also known as St. Patrick's Cemetery.

This is a perpetual care cemetery owned and maintained by the City of Perry.
