Long Description:
Le plus grand des six cimetières est le cimetière Notre-Dame, situé sur le boul. Fournier (secteur Hull). Il semble que les Oblats de Marie Immaculée ont acquis en 1866, un terrain d'une centaine d'arpents sur le boul. Fournier. En 1872, le Père Henri Tabaret a acheté dans le même secteur, 52,5 hectares de terrain de John et William Welch, marchands de bois de Hull. Par la suite, Andrew Leamy a donné 1,6 hectare de terrain pour ériger un cimetière à cet endroit.
