Necropolis chapelThe Toronto Necropolis (Greek for City of the Dead) was established in 1850. It was built to replace the overcrowded Potter’s Field (known at various times as the York - and then Toronto - General Burying Ground or Strangers’ Burying Ground), a non-denominational cemetery, in Yorkville. The Necropolis Chapel (and porte-cochère and residence, now the office) was built by the architect Henry Langley in 1872 in the Gothic Revival style. Find a map of the Toronto Necropolis HERE.
