|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Union Burial Ground, a.k.a. West Street Burial Ground, a.k.a. Malt House Ground, a.k.a. Thumlert's, a.k.a. German Burial Ground, was located at West (Belgrade) and Vienna (Berks) Streets, on south side of Vienna (Berks) between West (Belgrade) and Gaul Streets.
In 1878, the burial grounds were in disrepair and many complaints were logded regarding the foul condition it had fallen into.
In June of 1884, it was determined that a portion of the cemetery along Vienna (Berks), between Belgrade and Gaul would be expanded and some burials removed to other locations.
In February of 1892 the removal of some 3,000 burials were begun to develop the remaining burial grounds for housing.
