In 1951, the Oddfellows Cemetery on 22nd street in Philadelphia was closed and the bodies reinterred to other cemeteries operated by the Oddfellows, including Lawnview Memorial Park and Mount Peace Cemetery.

The burial records for Mount Peace Cemetery are kept at Lawnview Memorial Park in Rockledge, Pennsylvania.
