Our Cemeteries

Our church maintains two cemeteries, an older one on Tomac Ave. which is located just south of where our oldest church building was, and the newer one located next to the current church building on Sound Beach Ave. The newer cemetery is now on a free self-guided audio tour, Click here.

  • The Tomac Historic Burying Ground (aka Old Sound Beach Cemetery) is about one acre and has burials from 1718 to 1904.  There were probably earlier burials, but there were no engraved headstones for these – only plain fieldstones.  Tomac Burying Ground is listed on the State Register of Historic Places. Click this link to see a spreadsheet list of the names of those buried there, and click on the plot value for any person to jump to the map of plots.

    Find Tomac burials and headstone photos on Findagrave. (Warning – not all memorials listed there are verified with actual headstones or burial data.)
  • The Sound Beach Avenue Cemetery, just south of our church, is about four acres and has burials that began around 1835, when the church bought that farmland.  Most of the plots in the main part of this cemetery are sold and hold about 3,960 interments.  Plots in the Columbarium (cremations only) are still available.
