In 1862, the Hull City Corporation/Board of Health acquired 5 acres of land from the Hull General Cemetery Company and opened a public burial ground immediately adjacent to the privately owned General Cemetery. This new public cemetery was called the Borough Cemetery but became known later as the Western Cemetery after it was expanded across Chanterlands Ave in 1889.

Burial registers for Western Cemetery are available at the Hull History Center. The registers are divided into those for burials on the east of Chanterlands Avenue (covering the period 1861-1994) and those for burials on the west side of Chanterlands Ave (covering the period 1889 to 1994). The registers for the Western Cemetery use the title "Borough Cemetery, Spring Bank" and should not be confused with the registers for the General Cemetery which was also located on Spring Bank.
