Cemetery notes and/or description:
Woodlawn Memorial Park, formerly known as Woodlawn Cemetery, is an 80-acre historic cemetery located in the north end of the city of Guelph. Opened in 1854, the 150-year-old memorial park is operated by The Guelph Cemetery Commission, is a proud member of the Guelph Historical Society, and enjoys a working partnership with Guelph Museums.

Originally established by the city as Union Cemetery, the first burial in the grounds was that of James Scroggie in January 1854. It was not until 1925 that the name was changed to Woodlawn Cemetery. In 2004, in celebration of 150 years of service and to reflect the kind of services provided to the public, the name was changed again to Woodlawn Memorial Park.

Located at the north end of the city of Guelph on the corner of Woolwich Street (Hwy 6N) and Woodlawn Road (Hwy 7), the Memorial Park is open to the public during daylight hours. Several public services and special events are held throughout the year, including Blue Christmas, a unique seasonal celebration held in the evening, when participants sing carols as they walk the pathways of the cemetery by candlelight.
