Owned and operated by Mount Pleasant Cemetery (London) Inc. Oakland Cemetery was instituted as a cemetery in 1855 by the United Presbyterian Church Congregation on the west side of the site. In 1864 the Wesleyan Methodist New Connections Church established its cemetery on the east side, and in 1882 the two groups amalgamated their holdings into Oakland Cemetery, also known as the Scotch Cemetery and Proudfoot Cemetery. The cemetery was left unattended and neglected for many years, except for the efforts of Reverend Elson who tried to clean the cemetery up in the early 1950s' and Oakridge Secondary School students who undertook Project '75 with another clean up. Unfortunately their efforts were never continued. The Cemetery was conveyed by deed to Mount Pleasant Cemetery (London) Inc. in 1982 by the Metropolitan United church and the First St. Andrews United Church on the basis of an undertaking by Mount Pleasant to willingly guarantee "to rebuild and redesign said property maintaining the traditional dignity of a cemetery property to the high standards of Mount Pleasant Cemetery"%. All historical burial and lot records were destroyed in a house fire many years ago. While no one knows the exact number of interments made, because of the practice of unmarked graves, the estimates range from 350 - 574 burials.
