The present Newark City Hall now stands where this cemetery once was. This necessitated the removal by the church of any remains in the late 1950's to a mass grave in a memorial garden in a different section of the church grounds. The cemetery had not been maintained for some years and many grave stones were broken or were not legible. The remaining intact headstones were placed in storage in the basement.
