Missing People From Montreal's Old Cemeteries

This is a list of Anglo-Montrealers who died in Montreal before the formation of Mount Royal Cemetery. In most cases they were buried in the old cemeteries which have now disappeared. Some bodies were interred to Mount Royal at a later date, while others were left for the city to grow over them. This information has been found in church death/burial records by the people researching these families.

If you've found info on a relative who was buried in one of the old Montreal cemeteries please e-mail the information to me and I'll add them to this list.
