Registered to City of London. From Delaware & Westminster Townships Honouring Our Roots: "This cemetery existed as early as the 1820s. Six individuals who died in that decade are buried there, including Phebe, wife of David Norton, whose grave is marked by a small, white marble headstone. The only burial recorded before this was that of an infant daughter born to Daniel and Linda Davis which occurred in 1811. By 1820, the land on which the cemetery stands had been patented by Adolphus Bostwick." "Adolphus died in January 1851 and, within a month of his death, Bostwick's apparent son and heir, Burban Brockway Bostwick, sold the then half-acre burial ground to Peter McClary, David Norton and John Henry Bostwick, all of Westminster. In June 1868, the cemetery trustees purchased 1/4 acre to the east and south of the original burying ground from Eli Samuel Jarvis." "From 1885 until 1944, the burial ground was officially known as Westminster East Cemetery, although it was also referred to as the Nilestown Cemetery. However, since 1956, it has been known as Bostwick Cemetery. Since the annexation of Westminster Twp. in 1993, the City of London has stopped all burials.".
