On-line grave locator

This time of year families visit our cemeteries to place Christmas arrangements on their deceased love ones’ final resting places. If anyone has trouble locating a family member buried at our diocesan cemeteries, search the App Store for “Wilmington Catholic Cemeteries” A free App will be available for downloading that will enable the user to search our burial data base and find G.P.S. navigation to a particular location. In addition, family members have the option of placing on –line memories of their deceased loved ones. This service is provided free of charge. When visiting the cemetery be sure that you are aware of your surroundings. Always hide any valuables out of sight and be sure to lock your car and take your keys. If you have any questions please call (302) 656 – 3323.

Catholic Cemeteries Spring Newsletter

Effective August 1, 2015 the offices at Cathedral and All Saints Cemeteries will be eliminating  the Saturday office hours of 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. An in depth study of activity during the past year has indicated that only a very few families have made use of these additional hours. I believe that the on-line grave locator data base on our website at cdow.org/cemeteries has  assisted people in finding graves when the offices are closed. There is also a droid and Apple App “Wilmington Catholic Cemeteries” that is available for free with gps grave navigation included in the grave search. Saturday appointments with family services are still available upon request. Office hours are now 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Mon – Fri. Cemetery visiting hours are 7:30a.m. until 4 p.m. every day except for Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from April through September when visiting hours are extended until 7 p.m. 


Families at All Saints Cemetery should be aware that deer are roaming the grounds and eating some of the fresh flowers being placed in vases. As a solution to this problem the cemetery will be selling limited amounts of artificial arrangements for $17.00 – cash and carry.   Please check with the office if you have any questions.
