Between 1772 and 1860, between 6000 and 10,000 Anglican and Presbyterian mourners were interred in this cemetery. Although there are still 314 tombstones in the cemetery with 518 inscriptions, the majority of the deceased were interred in unmarked graves, as in typical cemeteries from that era. The cemetery has a self-guided smartphone tour available. David Mendel, a historian, videotaped the trip in both English and French. He explains the history of the location through his moving descriptions of the gravestones and the people buried there.
