Mount Hope Catholic Cemetery

Notes:
Mount Hope was created near the end of the 19th Century when the Archdiocese of Toronto was faced with a capacity issue at St. Michael's Cemetery (Toronto).
Land was found further north of Toronto and Mount Hope was consecrated on July 9, 1898 by Roman Catholic Archbishop John Walsh.[1] The first burial occurred on March 27, 1900.[2] By the end of the 20th Century, the cemetery was full, holding the remains of more than 76,000 persons. However, the cemetery plans to convert several roads for use as graves and to build a columbarium for those cremated.[1]
The cemetery contains the graves of 147 Commonwealth service personnel from both World Wars, registered by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.[3]
For the cemetery's centennial, the Catholic Cemeteries Archdiocese of Toronto published "A History of Mount Hope Cemetery Toronto Ontario 1898 to 1998" written by Michael Power.
Within 50 years Mount Hope was facing a capacity issue and in 1954 Holy Cross Cemetery, Thornhill, Ontario opened to ease the burden on Mount Hope. With additional landed added next to the property, Burke Brook Ravine was buried as storm sewer in 1960.[4]
Existing roads are being closed to free up land and columbarium being added for cremated remains will allow Mount Hope to continue to be Catholic burial site.[4]
