Streetsville Public Cemetery

Streetsville Public Cemetery is located at 1786 Bristol Road West on the south side of Bristol Road/ Main Street between Mississauga Road/ Queen Street South and Creditview Road. It was established in 1892 when Streetsville Memorial Cemetery had reached its capacity. It is one of the most beautiful, well landscaped cemeteries in Southern Ontario as it overlooks the East Bank of the Credit River.

History

In 1890, the Streetsville Cemetery Company Ltd. formed with the goal to establish a burial ground for all religions. In May 1891, the Provincial Board of Health approved a site east of the Credit River for the cemetery. The first burial appears to have been at the end of July, 1892 - a five year old child by the name of Nathaniel William (Willie) Brown, who drowned in the Credit River at Barbertown on July 16, 1892. There are multiple stones within the cemetery which indicate dates of death before 1892; however, it is unlikely that there would have been burials before the survey date.
