If you went through the Bellmawr School system and it's Bell Oaks Middle School, you undoubtedly know of the small cemetery across the street from the school at the corner of Anderson Ave and Bell Rd.. No sign to identify the cemetery. No office. Simply a cemetery that on one hand seems forgotten, but on the other still has people visiting regularly and even a rare new burial.
The cemetery is the Resurrection of Christ Cemetery, established in the early 1900s by a Polish Catholic church in Camden, who established the cemetery in an area where Polish immigrants were establishing homes.
For the core information I present here, we have the State's massive road project to thank. As part of the extensive research into all impacts of the state's massive road project, the NJDOT commissioned an extensive history of the area. Amazingly, while so few know nothing about this quiet cemetery and those who are resting there, the state was able to put together a very interesting set of history.
