This project is for those buried in Mount Hermon Cemetery, Sillery, Québec. The cemetery is also known by its French name of Cimetière Mount Hermon.

Notable Interments

In early 1847 the business community and clergy of Sillery held a meeting to discuss the establishment of a new cemetery. This led to the creation of the Quebec Protestant Cemetery Association and the new cemetery was registered May 30, 1849. The official name given at that time was "Mount Hermon," named for the sacred mountain situated on the border between Lebanon and Syria, north of Israel. The sign at the entrance reads "Visitors are reminded that these Grounds are appropriated for the Interment of the Dead, and that a strict observance of the proprieties due to the place is therefore indispensable."

The cemetery administration has gone through and taken digital photos of all the headstones. They can be contacted by phone or via email.
