ST. PAUL'S CHURCHYARD.

Non-sectarian.

Sexton — Philip G. Waters, at office.
Interments — Are still permitted to lot-owners and the charge

for opening a grave is $11. Very few burials have been

made there during the past decade or more, as nearly all

the plots are filled.

This cemetery is not as old as Trinity Churchyard, but its
history is interwoven with that of Trinity's, for, as is well
known, St. Paul's Church was built to accommodate Trinity's
increasing congregation. It was during the year of 17G3 that
it was decided to erect a new chapel and in 1766 this church was
opened and at the time was considered the finest church building
on this continent.

From the time of the dedication of the Church, records of
interments are found of the well-known persons of those days,
although for many years the Trinity Churchyard appears to have
been the more preferred burial place.
