Description: Streetsville Public Cemetery is located on the South side of Bristol Road / Main Street between Mississauga Road / Queen Street South and Creditview Road. The Cemetery is one of the most beautiful well landscaped in Southern Ontario, as it overlooks the East bank of the Credit River.

The first burial appears to have been a five year old child, Nathaniel William (Willie) Brown who drowned in the Credit River at Barbertown. Multiple stones within the cemetery show dates of death before Nathaniel Brown's, but it is unlikely that there would have been burials before the survey date. It is more likely that these individuals are buried elsewhere with their names being added to the family stone, or it is also possible that they were moved into the cemetery after its opening and reburied here. There is some evidence that points to individuals from Streetsville Memorial (Pioneer, Scotch Burying Ground, St. Andrews Presbyterian) cemetery being moved by their families to the new family plot in Streetsville.
