Founded in 1874, Groveside Cemetery originated on five-acres of land in what is now known as the Town of Whitby. In 1930, the cemetery doubled in size and shortly after the expansion, ownership of the site was assumed by the Town of Whitby. Today, Groveside Cemetery has twenty-six acres of available land, fourteen acres of which is developed and in use.
