Search Cementerio Protestante del Socorro:

In 1821, a group of influential settlers obtained the necessary permission to acquire a small parcel of land, 18 by 75 yards (68.55 by 16.45 m.) for what was to be the first Protestant cemetery in the City of Buenos Aires. It was located in Calle del Socorro (now Juncal street) at the side of the Socorro Parish churchyard.
Between the years 1821 and 1833, a total of 584 persons were buried in this cemetery. Subsequently the British community acquired the Victoria Cemetery for burying their dead, and this in 1892 was superseded by the British Cemetery in Chacarita.
