Established in 1876, Mount Pleasant Cemetery has a rich and
textured history. It is the keeper of thousands of stories, each of
which has contributed to the history of our city, province, and
Many of Canada''s most beloved figures rest there - William Lyon
Mackenzie King, Foster Hewitt, Glenn Gould, and Timothy Eaton are
just a few. Other, less known historical figures are buried there
also - the first Canadian soldier killed in First World War and
victims of the 1949 Noronic disaster.
Along with a fascinating account of the cemetery''s history,
this illustrated guide includes descriptions of the remarkable
monuments and the beautiful horticultural features. Accompanying
maps detailing their locations make this book a perfect companion
for a walking tour through the grounds.
