Located north of Victoria on Cathedral Avenue, west side of the road.

The was the first catholic cemetery for the town of Victoria, which started in 1873. It is no longer in use since about 1899. It is now the property of Saint Fidelis Catholic Church.

After this cemetery was closed, gradually many burials were removed to the present Saint Fidelis Cemetery. Today only these burials remain, and there are no original markers or stones left. Some time after it's closure, someone placed a single marker in the cemetery with all the names, but without dates.

I surveyed this cemetery on Nov 20, 2003.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
