|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Mount Moriah Cemetery, situated in Philadelphia and Delaware Counties in Pennsylvania encompasses over 200 acres with over 100,000 burials. In April 2011, the cemetery ceased operations. Since that time, concerned stakeholders such as the City of Philadelphia, the Borough of Yeadon and the Friends of Mount Moriah Cemetery, Inc. have joined forces to preserve this historic burial ground. To date, the Mount Moriah Cemetery Association, incorporated in 1855, is still in existence; however, there are no surviving members of the corporation. Legal options are being pursued for ownership but in the interim, the Friends of Mount Moriah Cemetery are working diligently to restore and preserve the cemetery by hosting monthly restoration events.
The entire cemetery is open for visitors. If you would like assistance in locating your ancestor on site, contact the Friends of Mount Moriah Cemetery at firstname.lastname@example.org.
