The cemetery and its headstones were added to the South Australian Register of Heritage Places on 15 December 1986. The cemetery was established in 1858 and was consecrated by Bishop Brown of Adelaide on 6 March 1859. The original cemetery was located at the junction of Park Terrace, West Terrace, and Brighton Road, and in 1859, it was moved to the present site, where the remains of the first burials remained. The cemetery was formed from a section of the Somerton Park estate, a large area that stretched from the intersection of Brighton Highway and Charlestown Road in Somerton Park. The land was given to the Church of England by Thomas Clark in 1812, in return for allowing the church to use land in the vicinity.
The South Australian Government is giving local residents access to the North Brighton Cemetery in Somerton Park, for the first time, to mourn the loss of their loved ones.
