Cemetery notes and/or description: Lot 7, Brant's Block, Nelson Township
Greenwood Cemetery was established in 1888 by the Greenwood Cemetery Company of Burlington. The cemetery was subdivided into numbered blocks and roadways. These numbered blocks now compose the "Old Section" of Greenwood.
In 1968, management of the cemetery was taken over by the former Town of Burlington (now the City of Burlington). In 1971, additional land was surveyed into blocks identified by letters. Those lands are now known as the "New Section" of Greenwood.
In 2011, the cemetery was expanded further when two acres of neighbouring property was donated in memory of four generations of McMillans who farmed the land from 1900-2012.
