Historic Plaque: Wexford Cemetery

Wexford Cemetery. Origially "Fitzpatrick Appointment". Established in 1841 by the Wesleyan Methodist congregation in Wexford. Conveyed to the Canadian Wesleyan church in 1884, then to the United Church of Canada in 1925. Declared a pioneer cemetery in 1982 by the city of North York. Remnants of the gravestones are buried in the base of this cairn and legible inscriptions are recorded with the archives of Ontario. This cairn is dedicated to the memory of the early pioneers. May they rest in peace.


Please note there are three cemeteries that can easily be confused. Both of the Wexford cemeteries are in Scarborough, and the other Zion Church cemetery is in North York:
