A good foundation always helps so it's worth saying that at the end of the 21st century there were 86 identified tombs in the Valley of the Kings and many believed that the canon was complete at that. Those 62 tombs are numbered in the order of their discovery from KV1, the tomb of Ramses VII, up to KV62, the tomb of Tutankhamun famously discovered by Howard Carter in 1926.
The definitive guide to these tombs is the Atlas of the Valley of the Kings from the Theban Mapping Project at www.kv5.com.
It's worth noting a few things:
1) As several tombs were robbed in antiquity, for safekeeping Egyptian priests moved the mummies of a number of pharoahs into caches containing several mummies.
2) For this reason the identification of several mummies and tombs remains in dispute.
3) The tombs of certain pharoahs and their queens have not yet been found but quite which remain to be discovered is open to a degree of debate.
