Alderley Cemetery is a large site with uncertain boundaries, about .3 mile northeast of the site of Alderley House. Three markers dating to the 1880s are site irregularly on the high ground. At the north edge of the cemetery, which slopes down to the swamp, is a section with numerous depressions indicating burials. Only five markers are legible, with dates ranging from 1918 to 1943, but several of the depressions are marked with seashells or glass.
