Union Cemetery, Mays Landing, Atlantic County, NJ
Union Cemetery rests along Somers Point Road (CR 559) in Mays Landing, Atlantic County, New Jersey. Placing the street address into my
GPS did not bring me to precisely the right place but then again, my GPS likes to mess around with me. The cemetery can be found on
Somers Point Rd. between Old River Road and North St.
The mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address for the association which runs the place are:

It is an old cemetery, dating to the mid 1800s buyt remains active with thousands of plots still available.
I'm not sure of the actual size of the place but I would say it is large, emcompassing several acres and holding thousands
of burials. The property is heavily filled with trees and shrubs but well maintained. There are a large amount of older burials here.
We endeavored to photograph a couple hundred randomly chosen tombstones. We hope this helps you with your family history research.
