Aiken County Pauper Service

A long standing tradition in our great county…….

Here is the report from last year.

Capt. Bobby Wilson, ACSO

Pauper Burial Ceremony in Aiken County

Five deceased Aiken County men and one woman whose bodies have gone unclaimed were laid to rest on Friday June 03, 2011 at 10:00 at the Calvary Cemetery on Gregg Highway as part of a pauper burial.

Friends and family of the deceased who could be found will be notified, but many had no one to claim them.

Anyone who may want to pay his or her respects is invited to attend the graveside services. The Coroner’s Office has made every effort to contact their families, but some didn’t have the financial resources to properly bury an extended family member and some couldn’t be found.
