This cemetery handles the maintainence and record keeping for Finn's Point National Cemetery in Pennsville, New Jersey, Philadelphia National Cemetery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the Naval Asylum Plot in Mount Moriah Cemetery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. All burial inquires for these three burial places should be directed to Beverly National Cemetery.
The original cemetery was only one acre, purchased from a local resident in 1863. The plot was located in the northwest corner of the town cemetery surrounded by a picket fence. Additional land was acquired in 1936, 1937, 1948 and 1951.
The cemetery was established to provide a burial site for veterans who died in one of two nearby hospitals. Of the original 147 Union soldiers buried at Beverly National Cemetery, only 10 are unknown. For much of its history, the cemetery handled relatively few interments. The number of interments grew dramatically, however, when space became unavailable at Philadelphia National Cemetery. Beverly National Cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.
