Cemetery notes and/or description:
A solemn row of graves separates Union Cemetery from the adjacent Hawes Burying Ground.

The last cemetery laid out in South Boston, Adam Bent purchased the burying ground from the Warren Association Trustees in 1841. Bent then sold all but two small parcels to Samuel Blake who sold lots to individuals and families. The cemetery's stones date from 1845-1886.

Prominent Bostonians buried here include Cyrus Alger, whose iron foundry dominated South Boston's industrial life during the mid 1800s.
