Registered to Township of North Huron. The first burial ground in Wingham was opened in 1866 on Josephine Street where the town park is today. Once the railroad come and town grew northward, it was seen that a larger cemetery was needed farther from town. In 1876, 10 acres were purchased from Alex Kelly outside the Town Plot, and the graves were removed from town. On the highest point of land in the grave yard there is a grey granite marker inscribed with the name Hugh Cummings, dated 1876. This marks the first burial held in the present Wingham Cemetery.
