New Camden Cemetery
Photographic Record

In September of 2013 I received an e-mail with some photos of markers at New Camden Cemetery. The person who sent them to me mentioned that she had taken about 200 pictures and wanted to turn them into a web-page, but did not know how. Needless to say, I volunteered!

If you have any pictures you would like to add to this page, please let me know by e-mail.

I've taken many photos there myself over the years and I'm sure other people have as well. This page is for any and all photos of markers and tombstones from this cemetery. 

New Camden Cemetery is owned and operated by the City of Camden. The land for the cemetery was purchased in 1887 and the cemetery opened up shortly thereafter. Click here for a history of New Camden Cemetery.

Although the City's Department of Public Works is responsible for maintaining the cemetery, visible evidence suggests that the department has been less than intensely focused on this particular task.

In a June, 2000, message posted to the public, former Camden County Historical Society executive director Paul Schopp said, "Old Camden Cemetery has been a political football for many years... The grass is cut on occasion and, occasionally, inmates from the County jail also appear at the cemetery to perform cleanup duties.

In years past, when a marker was knocked from its base, the errant marker was thrown into the back of a dump truck and dumped into the Delaware River up near the Farragut Yacht Club in East Camden. It is a shame and a crime, but the state cemetery laws are not strong enough to prevent this type of disaster." 

Conditions have not been much better at New Camden Cemetery, either. As neglect by the city and vandalism is pretty much a constant there and at Evergreen and Old Camden Cemetery as well, I think it might be a good idea to get photos at each site and archive them, and is as good a place as any for that! I will set up pages for the other two cemeteries in the very near future.

Time and too many things to do at present does not allow me to go back through existing pages on the site at this time. If you find an image of a marker at any of the three cemeteries, let me know by e-mail so I can add it to the appropriate page.
