Lutheran All Faiths Cemetery Middle Village, Queens, NY

 

Hi all,

 

I know I promised a meetup for January but my foot has been slow in healing and the weather hasn't been great.  I am still planning on the next trip to Lutheran All Faiths where many victims of the General Slocum (boat) disaster are buried.  I will scout out a good place to meet and a good travel route throught the cemetery.

 

Some other interesting cemeteries in Queens are Prospect Cemetery, which is a very old cemetery in Jamaica, near York College and Old Calvary.  I'll also plan some trips away from the city, to Sleepy Hollow and to Long Island as the weather improves.

 

Be well and I hope you can join us!

 

Leslie

    My Great Grandfather is buried at Lutheran All Faiths Cemetery and I was hoping to find someone to take a photo of his grave site and e-mail it to me. I live in Florida and it is not possible for me to visit at this time. Can someone in this group help?

    Thanks, Bill Deller

      I have spoken to the office and she was very helpful. My Great Grandfather is Louis Deller,[masked], and is buried in Section 2021-Map4. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

    Can anyone who if familiar with Lutheran All Faiths help Mr. Deller out? I have been there a couple of times but don't know it all that well.

      Leslie, is there a way we can upload photos to Meetup? Would enjoy seeing your pics, I have a few good shots but lighting issues with many. I did request Ship Ablaze from QPL, thanks Kevin!

    Evidently, from looking at their website, All Faiths has a strict photography policy. Given that the cemetery is so large and we are going on a Sunday, it shouldn't be a problem. But, they do not allow photographs of stained glass, the inside of family mausoluems and are strict about commercial usage. I am applying for a permit which I'll pick up when I visit. Otherwise, I think if we follow the rules, we shouldn't worry. If you are a commercial photographer, it's probably best to fill out a permit. It's on their website.

      I know this cemetery well. My family is buried there. The best place for photographs is on the Northern side of Metropolitan Ave. which is the older area. The Slocum monument is on the South Side. Also there is a great old German restaurant in the area for a bit afterwards. Zum Standish.
