Cemetery notes and/or description:

Established in 1822, St. Paul's is the mother church of the Archdiocese of Toronto. The first St. Paul's was completed in 1824 on the same site as today's Basilica. After the Diocese was created in 1841, Bishop Michael Power used St. Paul's as his unofficial Cathedral until the completion of St. Michael's Cathedral in 1848. Bishop Power and over 800 immigrants who died from a typhus epidemic in 1847 are buried in a mass grave on the church grounds, the first Catholic Cemetery in the Archdiocese and Toronto area. The cemetery was closed in 1857, with 2800 burials. In the late 1800's the tombstones were moved and destroyed, to create more green spaces for downtown Toronto. Currently the cemetery is paved over and is being used as a parking lot for the Basilica.
