This is the third of four cemeteries called Ste-Marie-Madeleine in Trois-Rivières. The first cemetery associated with Ste-Marie-Madeleine Cemetery was used from 1662 to 1861 holding the pioneers of Trois-Rivières. The second was used from 1861 to 1882. The third was used from 1882 to 1930. The fourth is being used now having started in 1930. Each time the bodies were removed from the previous cemetery and buried in the newer cemetery. Thus incredibly the pioneers have been buried four times always in a Ste-Marie-Madeleine Cemetery. The second and third cemeteries are located in the Cap-de-la-Madeleine ward of Trois-Rivières. The first and fourth are located in Ste-Marthe-du-Cap ward.
