Head of Christiana Cemetery

HOC CemetaryThe Head of Christiana Cemetery occupies roughly four-and-a-half acres north of the Church, with the oldest tombstones clustered near the Church and the more recent ones located farther north toward Nottingham Road. Several tombstones date from the mid-eighteenth century  and include many notable Newark area persons as well as thirty-six Revolutionary War patriots.   However, the majority date from the  mid-nineteenth century to the present. A stuccoed stone wall surrounds the cemetery.

The cemetery is managed by the Head of Christiana Cemetery Association and calls relative to burial lots and Columbarium sales and burials, information about those buried in the cemetery and their location, and financial matters may be directed to:
