The cemetery is on a long, narrow strip of land stretching from Seashore Road to Shun Pike (south of the Cape May Canal); as you enter from Seashore Road, the burial plots are about halfway down on the right, midway between the "pagoda" circle and the "cross" circle. The closest headstone to the road is "Gilligan"; several headstones back is the one for John and Ann Benson, close friends of Grandma and Grandpa, who are buried side-by-side to the left, their graves marked by ground-level plaques.
