Cemetery notes and/or description:
Ware Episcopal Church is located on Rt. 14, about one mile northeast of Gloucester Courthouse beside the road toward Mathews. Information about the church and its cemetery is available online at The parish office is on site and open most mornings.

Ware Parish was established around 1652, and the still-active colonial church was built about 1718. An earlier parish church was located about a mile east on the Ware River. The first burial at the current Ware Church site was for the Rev. James Clack, in 1723. There are just over a thousand gravestones in the cemetery, including many gravestones from burials in family graveyards in the area and dating to the early eighteenth century that were moved to the church cemetery for preservation.
