In the 1950s, the City of Hamilton recognized the need for a large municipal cemetery to serve the growing population of the Hamilton mountain. Recognizing that this was to be the future growth area for the city, the Mount Hamilton Cemetery was created with the purchase of land on the north side of Rymal Road, in the former township of Glanford. The cemetery officially opened on 24 October 1964 and is the largest cemetery in the Upper City.
