From Bruce Uttley: This municipal cemetery lies next to the Kitchener cemetery of the same name along a line where the two cities met. When the cemeteries were established, they were both well outside of their respective towns. The cemeteries are now surrounded by the established neighbourhoods and both have been supplemented with modern suburban cemeteries. The original cemeteries in the two villages were churchyards or private grounds, but as the villages grew it became apparent that civic cemeteries were needed.

A survey map of Waterloo from 1854 indicates that the Waterloo cemetery was originally to have been on the south [or west] side of King Street, on the site of the present-day hospital. The street on the west [or north] edge of that land is still called Mount Hope Street. However, we have no indication that this area served as a cemetery. In 1865, Waterloo and Berlin [later Kitchener] appointed committees to arrange for a joint cemetery, but in the end, Waterloo acted on its own, purchasing seven acres from Reeve John Hoffman for the purpose. Hoffman also gave another acre for use as a free cemetery and space for a Potter's Field was also set aside. The village council regulated the use of the cemetery with by-law 25 in 1867.

On the Pine Street gate to the cemetery is the notation: Mt. Hope Cemetery / Established - 1865 / This Pioneer Gateway Erected - 1932. The stone used in the gateway is from the ruins of a building erected about 1830 by one of Waterloo County's early pioneers Andrew Groff, born in Lancaster County Pennsylvania in 1793, died in Waterloo, Ontario in 1877.
