Brick Street Cemetery

This pioneer cemetery, dating from 1813, has undergone significant restoration since it first participated in Doors Open 13 years ago. During the Doors Open London weekend, learn about one of London’s oldest pioneer cemeteries and its unique history within a national and local context through a video presentation. You will meet some of the volunteers who work to preserve its stones and research its dead, and examine restoration techniques as well as ground-penetrating radar. In addition, there will be a series of short theatrical presentations by local actors portraying events in the lives of some of the interesting people buried at Brick Street Cemetery. As part of Digital Doors Open, find out if you have any ancestors buried here through the Find a Grave web resource. Or explore the site through the lens of Canada’s Historic Places registry and learn about its heritage significance.
