Oaklands Cemetery - West Chester, Pennsylvania

West Chester, PA 19382
West Chester leadership decided to cease the practice of burying the dead within the town. This led to the formation of Oaklands Cemetery in 1854. It is a non-profit cemetery.
According to their 2014 Form 990, 20 to 30 people are interred here per year.
This is a very old cemetery with a very small amount of money. They are only showing a fund balance of $64,528 as of the end of 2014. During that year they had $23,749 worth of lot sales and $28,217 in other revenue - probably from burials and perhaps foundation fees.
It's a beautiful old cemetery back in the woods. There are rolling hills. It is quite unusual.
