The Old Walled Ceme­tery in Mary­hill is locat­ed beside St. Boni­face Church at 1367 Mary­hill Rd.

The orig­i­nal St Boni­face Ceme­tery (also known as the “Old Walled” ceme­tery) was estab­lished in its present loca­tion in 1851. An ear­li­er ceme­tery was estab­lished in 1834 across the road. The old­est tomb­stone is dat­ed 1843. There are 693 tomb­stones and 74 unmarked graves. In the cen­tre of this ceme­tery is a large white tomb­stone mark­ing the graves of some of the for­mer priests of this parish. In 2015 a Mon­u­ment to Ances­tors was added to replace those tomb­stones that had deteriorated.

A self tour guide to the ceme­tery is avail­able at Hal­ter House. See also Diane Strick­ler,  St Boni­face Ceme­tery, Mary­hill pub­lished by the Water­loo His­tor­i­cal Society.
