New Somerville Cemetery, Somerville, Somerset County, NJ

New Somerville Cemetery rests right across South Bridge St. from Old Somerville Cemetery (aka Old Raritan Cemetery) in Somerville, Somerset County, New Jersey.   The two cemeteries are separately owned and operated.   "New" was apparently the replacement for "Old" in the sense that "Old" was pretty much out of space a long time ago.   "Old" has some space remaining inside family owned lots but no open space for new lots.   "New" appears to have a fair amount of open space.

Many surnames appear in both cemeteries.   While "Old" has most of the very oldest burials, "New" still has many old burials as it has been open since around the time of the Civil War.   "New" is much larger than "Old" covering many acres and housing thousands of interments.

Our mission with this cemetery is to photograph as many of the older tombstones as we can but this will certainly not be a complete work.   The best we can hope for is to photograph several thousand interments.   We will add to this list as time permits.
