The Military Burying Ground (Old).

The old military burying ground, also known as Garrison Common Burials, was closed in 1863. The graves and makers were moved to the Military Burying Ground (New), located in the Historic Fort York property.

Today this former burying ground is located in Exhibition Place and is Centennial Park. There are no monuments or signs indicating that there had been a cemetery on this site.

Resources for Further Research

Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS) The OGS has transcribed most cemeteries in Toronto and this data is available for purchase through their website at OGS – Toronto Branch

The Ontario Name Index (TONI) Another resource provided by the Ontario Genealogical Society is The Ontario Name Index (TONI) which provides a searchable index of names. These names are linked to a number of different sources of data including cemetery transcriptions. It does not provide this source information but only where to find it. Most sources are available for purchase via the OGS (Note: this database includes all of Ontario and it is massive. Nevertheless, it may prove helpful place to start).

Ontario Cemetery Finding Aid (OCFA) Another excellent tool for searching cemetery records in Ontario is the Ontario Cemetery Finding Aid (OCFA). This is a comprehensive searchable database of cemeteries and family names. The site does not have links to transcriptions or provide details about the individual you may be searching for, but it is very helpful for quickly locating the burial location of someone in Ontario to guide your next steps for research.
