Tranquility Steeped in Tradition

The Mount Royal Cemetery and Funeral Complex was the first cemetery to be located on Mount Royal at the site of old orchards and farms. Following the North American tradition of combining horticulture and interment in perpetuity, the location on the mountain was chosen due to its beautiful landscape views, abounding nature and peaceful surroundings that follow the natural curves of the mountain in a series of terraces. The cemetery is the home of many species of songbirds, from woodpeckers and winter finches in the winter months, to screech owls, American kestrels, bluejays, robins, chickadees, gray catbirds, thrashers, mockingbirds and eastern peewees to tree swallows and bluebirds. Over 145 species has thus far been spotted in this idyllic natural oasis.


Extract from the First Annual Report of The Cemetery in 1852

“The Trustees last obtained on the other side of the Mountain a tract of land admirably adapted for their purpose, possessing sufficient depth of soil, rivulets and springs to make ponds and lakes, well wooded, and with an undulating surface and beautiful for situation, - retired from the bustle and heat of the City, and yet near and convenient of access. A spot capable of being made one of the most beautiful and finest cemeteries in America. The Trustees are desirous of making it such. They therefore engaged Mr. Sidney, an eminent English Surveyor and Civil Engineer (…) to lay out the property acquired by the Company, so as to adapt it to its purposes, and to display, to the best advantage, its great natural beauties.”
