Important Note: Glenwood Cemetery Glenwood Memorial Gardens. Glenwood Cemetery was in North Philadelphia and began burials in 1850, but the city forced it to close and its graves were transferred outside the city to Broomall, Delaware County, although this was not until 1938. Thus anyone buried in Glenwood before February 1924 had to have originally been buried in Philadelphia at Ridge Avenue and 27th Street, because the Broomall location did not open until that date.
