St. Mary's Lithuanian Catholic Cemetery has been abandoned and was once part of a church that had an office at 331 Reed Street in Philadelphia, PA and was originally organized in 1926. However, the church is no longer in existence and 331 Reed Street is a vacant lot. The township is having the grass cut during the summer months (by a good samaritan) and placing flowers on the graves and a wreath on the gate at Christmas. The cemetery is off Galloway road between Knights Road and Hulmeville Road. Katie, our volunteer, has acquired additional records of the church after locating the early records from 1900 thru 1949 and has passed this information to Richard, who is currently working on putting all this information together. In 1949, the church sold the cemetery to, what appears to be, a group of members of the church who formed a Cemetery Board.

This cemetery was once active and several graves have been moved over the years. For convenience we have numbered the stones so that any additional information, such as a photo (if available) of the stone and/or condition of the stone be easily viewed by clicking on the Stone ID number (opens a new window).

Lastly, because this cemetery has been abandoned, the township is looking for an organization (e.g. Lithuanian church, group, organization) to take over the upkeep and handling of this cemetery. If you are part of a group that would be willing to take ownership of this cemetery, please do not hesitate to contact us.
