(856) 963-3500

By car – from the Walt Whitman House go east on Martin Luther King Blvd. until you arrive at Haddon Avenue (Cooper Hospital is on your right), turn right onto Haddon and drive straight for approximately 1.5 miles. Haleigh Cemetery will be on the left, just past Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center. (Please note: when you turn on to and head down Haddon Avenue you will drive through the Cooper Medical Center campus then you will approach and go under an I-676 overpass. Make sure to stay in the center lane as you go under the overpass. This will keep you on Haddon Avenue heading towards our Lady of Lourdes Hospital and Haleigh Cemetery.

By train – from the Walt Whitman House walk 1 ½ blocks east to the northwest corner of Martin Luther King Blvd. and Broadway.  Board the PATCO High Speed Line at the Broadway Station (subway) and take the train one stop to the Ferry Avenue Station. Exit the station (you’ll be facing south looking at the parking lot) and go one block north and cross at Haddon Avenue (you’ll see the cemetery on the other side).  Go to your left and walk a short distance to the main gate and enter.

Once you’ve entered Haleigh Cemetery’s main gate turn left past the caretaker’s building and walk or drive down the paved road path which leads to the tomb on your right.

Harleigh Cemetery is open Mon-Sat from 8:30 A.M. – 4:30 P.M. For more information, visit their website.
