From Delaware & Westminster Townships Honouring Our Roots: "Brick Street Cemetery served as the burial ground for settlers who arrived in Westminster Twp. in the early 1800s. It is one of the oldest burial grounds in the London area, with the first interment said to have occurred about 1813, although it was not officially established until 1820." "The land grant for the cemetery was made on August 30, 1851 by [Peter] McNames, to the Methodist Episcopal Church for a meeting house and burial ground.". First interment approximately 1813. The earliest stone remaining is dated 1819.

From plaque: "This cemetery served as the burial ground for settlers who first arrived in Westminster Township in 1810. In use by 1819, it is situated on land originally granted to Peter McNames and James Sheldon. Though the farms which once surrounded it have been subdivided, the Brick Street Cemetery, now the charge of Mount Zion United Church, remains as a memorial to our pioneer ancestors. / Erected by the London Foundation with the assistance of the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Culture."
