Mount Pleasant Cemetary Tips (4)

Fun For the Genealogist in All of Us!

This cemetery is comparable to a nice, quiet park, in that is has lots of walking/jogging/biking paths, not too much traffic, and some interesting momuments and structures that pay homage to Toronto's past elite - and not-so-elite.

For people just passing though to enjoy the park - the cemetery is worth visiting any time of year, however it will obviously be cold in winter - and those roads are often slippery - be careful!

For grave-hunters - the office staff is usually quite helpful in locating plots for you, and in fact, will even give you a map that pinpoints the exact location. I understand that at one time they didn't allow photographs to be taken - but I can assure you that this isn't the case anymore. Snap away! Grave hunters should, of course avoid visits in the winter months as locating a plot could be next to impossible. It's not just snow that you have to contend with - but also blocks of ice.

Mackenzie King's tomb is well marked and memorialized. Others will involve a bit of snooping.

Cemetery hours are typically determined by the amount of daylight at a given time of year. Gate usually close ast dusk.

Mount Pleasant Cemetery

Mount Pleasant Cemetery is Toronto's largest cemetery. It is especially noted for its fabulous tree collection, considered in some circles as one of the finest in North America, and beautiful landscaping. The Mount Pleasant Cemetery is also notable for the many famed Canadians laid to rest here. They include arguably Canada's great prime minister, William Lyon MacKenzie King, Glenn Gould, the brilliant classical pianist, and Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Frederick Banting. The cemetery is also the resting place for some of Canada's most notable families such as the Massey's and Eaton's.
I live near the cemetery and frequently walk through it to relax and ponder my future travels. I think that the cemetery is especially beautiful in the spring when the blossums are out.
The Mount Pleasant Cemetery is located at 375 Mount Pleasant Road

You don't have to die to get here

Some of the more interesting places to explore in Toronto are the cemetaries. Mount Pleasant Cemetary, entering east off Yonge St between Davisville and St Clair, and extending east towards Bayview Ave., has a wonderful collection of flowering trees, and shrubs. Many of Canada's who's who (No Mel, that is Not WHO as in World Health Organisation) of politics, literature, industry and finance are buried there... and of course in some of the other cemetaries around the city. It is sad seeing families that were wiped out through influenza and other illnesses early on in the history of the city.
Take a walk, ride a bike, respect the dignity of the families, but cemetaries are places for the living too.

Mount Pleasant...

Mount Pleasant Cemetary

Perhaps this sounds a bit morbid and macabre, however Mount Pleasant really is a beautiful cemetary. Some famous Canadians have been burried here, like Mackenzie King. In the fall, the changing colours of the leaves create a most beautiful sight. Many people take the time to walk through this renowned example of a Victorian Cemetary with its unique looking monuments.

To visit get off at Davisville Subway Station on the Yonge-University-Spadina line.
