New Burial Grounds In the middle of the 1800's, the cemeteries located downtown needed space desperately. Concerned with epidemics and public health issues, these cemeteries had to be developed elsewhere.
The Protestant community of Montreal purchased, in 1851, a section of Mount Royal that belonged to Dr. Michael McCulloch. Today, with a lot of contrasts in its topography, its monuments and the beautiful vegetation, the overall view is splendid.
Past and Present During 150 years of operations, The Mount Royal Cemetery Company has evolved and broadened its services to grieving families. After the construction of a crematorium in 1901 and the opening of another cemetery in 1910, the Company waited until the 1990's to make available to its clientele the complete variety of funeral services.
Future The 165 acre property of Mount Royal Cemetery still offers family lots and graves in perpetuity. Contrary to general belief, the cemetery has not attained full capacity. Even the old portion of the cemetery still has some burial sites available.
