ATTENTION: The following addition has been made on Dec. 4, 2015 to assist researchers in locating and accessing St. John's Cemetery.
I have additional location information to contribute for Saint John's Catholic Cemetery in Pensacola, FL. There are two cemeteries in Pensacola, FL named Saint John's. One cemetery is Saint John's Cemetery (Historic Cemetery) and the other is Saint John's Catholic Cemetery. I think adding this information will help genealogists to identify the two different cemeteries. They are not affiliated with one another.

I also obtained information on physical access to Saint John's Catholic cemetery. The cemetery gates are locked at all times, and there is a contact number to call for access to the cemetery. I drove a long ways to the cemetery and found out when I got there that the cemetery office has to be contacted to get access into the cemetery. So I would like to contribute this info to others who plan to visit the cemetery so they will know before they make a trip there.

NOTE: Access into Saint John's Catholic Cemetery:
The Cemetery gate is locked at all times.
To access cemetery, call: St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church at (850) 455-0356. The church is located at 303 South Navy Blvd., Pensacola, FL 32507. (The church is 2.4 miles south of the cemetery)

To access the cemetery, call the church at (850) 455-0356. The cemetery can only be accessed when the church office is open. (See office hour information noted below)

Call the church for access to the cemetery and you will be asked to come to the church to obtain the cemetery gate key. They ask for your name and a contact phone number and ask that you return the gate key.

If planning to visit the cemetery it would be a good idea to call the church before going to the cemetery as the church has specific office hours during the week. Their hours are Monday through Thursday 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM and Friday 8:30 AM to 1:00 PM. And church office would be closed on weekends and holidays. The cemetery and gate key can only be accessed when the church office is open. Unless you happen to be at the cemetery when a funeral is taking place.

Here is the church contact page

I discovered all this info after driving a long distance to the cemetery. I was able to access the cemetery but I wanted to share this information with others so they will know what to expect before making a trip to this cemetery.
