Clean-ups will be held 2 weeks prior to Easter and during the second week in October. Please remove anything you want to keep to ensure it is otherwise not removed by mistake. Make sure any decorations are securely attached to withstand wind, mowing, and trimming.
Please Note: Plants are permitted within 1 foot of the gravestone, but no shrubs or trees are permitted. Remember to cut back any perennials that require it.

Please notify the township of the burial of a veteran in the Camden Cemetery so flags may be placed.

Much of Camden Township burial information is online at the findagrave.com website. It's free to use. A name can be entered & information is usually accurate. It has photos of headstones if there is one & obituaries, death certification, or historical notes at times. It is a volunteer organization that has recorded many cemeteries in the county. We have given them a copy of our burial book, and we have added information to our burial book from their website. There are differences from our information & we hope to correct them in the future.
We appreciate any additional birth and death dates you might have or family relationships that might help us locate very old burials in the correct lots in the cemetery. We also request copies of deeds from a long period when the township did not keep a copy, an estimated period from the 30's through the 60's. Officials at the time only recorded a name & lot number.
