The Freeland Cemetery is on Birkbeck Street, north of Johnson Street. It is the oldest cemetery in Freeland. It is nondenominational and not connected with any particular churches.

St. Ann's Cemetery is on St. Ann's Road in the old Woodside area west of Freeland (can access it by driving west on Luzerne Street and bearing left after the Little League field).

St. Casimir's and St. Mary's Cemeteries are at the west end of School Street, which runs parallel to Walnut Street but one block south of it. There is a tiny alleyway at the very end of School Street that you can take a right on to get onto the west extension of Walnut Street.

The other cemeteries in Freeland are also located west of town, accessible by driving west on Walnut Street. I will need to double-check this, but I *think* that driving west from Walnut Street you will encounter them on this order (and all would be on your left except for one, as noted): St. John's Nepomucene, St. Anthony's, St. Peter and Paul Slovak Lutheran, Old St. Casimir's; at the end of that cemetery, Walnut Street and Butler Terrace Road come together and continue west as Butler Terrace Road, where you encounter St. John's Nepomucene #2 on the right and Ss. Peter and Paul Eastern Greek Catholic (Orthodox) on the left. I believe that St. Michael's buries in that last Ss. Peter and Paul Cemetery.

The Eckley Cemetery is just outside of Eckley, but although I visited it in fall of 2012 I was in the company of a friend who knew his way around out there and I couldn't tell you how to find it. Ask at the Eckley Museum.

The Upper Lehigh Cemetery is closed due to repeated vandalism.
