Title
Respectable Burial: Montreal’s Mount Royal Cemetery
Abstract
A social history of “death, burial and a cherished public space in Montreal” from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. Founded in 1852, Mount Royal Cemetery is the final resting place of the well known and the long forgotten in Canadian and Montreal history. The author explains how the history of this cemetery illustrates the changing attitudes towards burial and commemoration, including the relationship between Protestantism, Romanticism and death.
