Abstract
The history of Grosse Isle, an island below Quebec City used as a quarantine station in the nineteenth century. Thousands of Irish immigrants, who had died of typhus fever contracted on-board the "coffin ships" in 1847, are buried on the island, now a national historic site. In 1909, a memorial Celtic cross was erected on the island in memory of the dead.
