About:

Most Holy Redeemer Cemetery was established in 1887 to serve Philadelphia's German Catholic community. It is approximately 20 acre in size. City streets cut through sections of it. This is because the city seized that land.

According to their rules and regulations, they expect every stone to have a Christian symbol, like a cross, sandblasted into the top center of the monument. And it must be at least 6 inches in size.

Inscriptions on the backs of monuments are not allowed.

A base may not exceed 46 inches in length and 14 inches in width. The total height of the monument cannot exceed 48 inches (die and base).

Single graves can only have a maximum base size of 28 inches in length,  14 inches in width, and a maximum combined height of 48 inches.

Flat markers do not require a foundation (?).

Views of the Betsy Ross Bridge can be seen from here.

My overall impressions: it's a beautiful little cemetery. I was surprised. It's quite nice.
