AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - On May 18, more than 100 grave markers belonging to veterans were found inside the abandoned Dent’s Funeral Home in Augusta.

The Richmond County Coroner’s Office has been working with the National Cemetery Administration, the Richmond County Vital Records and the County Cemetery Services to catalog and find the graves for these markers. If there are family members of these Veterans who used Dents Funeral Home and are buried locally without a grave marker, they are asked to contact the Coroner’s Office at 706-821-2382.

On Thursday, the Corner’s Office sent out an update saying that more than 90 of the graves have been found.
