#B005 Union Cemetery (Waverly Avenue Cemetery), Patchogue Village, Suffolk County, Brookhaven Town, NY, USA


These are five historically separate cemeteries adjacent to each other: #05 Union, #05a Lakeview, #05b Rice, Old Episcopal, and Gerard. They were separated by iron fences which now contain significant gaps allowing communication between them. Sometimes all five were identified as "Lakeview."  Union is the the northwest site; Rice is the southwest site; and Lakeview is the east site.

In modern times, the cemeteries are frequently amalgamated into a single unit and identified as the Waverly Avenue Cemetery or Waverly Avenue Cemeteries.

More on information and histories on these cemeteries may be found at Cemetery Restoration Committee of Patchogue. According to this web site: "currently many of the Graves for the Cemeteries have been index and loaded to FindAGrave. Others are being unearthed as Volunteers work." While some of the entries here are the result of my personal research, most are not, being based on the FindAGrave entries. Some of the FindAGrave entries indicate an interment in the cemetery but there is no gravestone image; I am assuming that these are cases where the Committee as evidence of the interment but no visible marker has yet been found.

From the 1938 Town Historian description: "Former churchyard of the Patchogue Union Church and later extended into the old Patchogue Village Cemetery on the east side of Waverly Avenue,Patchogue. it is west of "Lake View Cemetery" (Cem.5a) and north of the so-called Rice Cemetery (Cem.5b) and separated from these two cemeteries by a wire and iron fence. At the time of making this copy [about 1938], it was in such bad condition that, while every effort was made to read every stone, one or two may have been overlooked. It contains many unmarked and unknown graves."
