Holy Trinity Cemetery is located on the west side of Yonge Street, just south of Royal Orchard Drive, in Thornhill. This was the original site of Holy Trinity Anglican Church, which was moved to Brooke Street in 1950.

The oldest date of death in the cemetery is that of Rebecca Thixton Willson, who died in 1804. Her remains were moved to Holy Trinity from her original burial site on the family farm at Yonge and Steeles in 1940, along with the remains of her husband, John Willson, who died in 1829 and was originally interred at East Gwillimbury. Other notable tombstones include:

  • Colonel Robert Moody, killed in the 1837 Rebellion as he made his way down Yonge Street from Richmond Hill to warn the government of the approaching rebels.
  • Garibaldi Langstaff and his family.
  • Donald Ben Marsh, second Bishop of the Arctic, whose unique handcarved stone reflects distinctive motives of Northern Canada.
  • Reverend George Mortimer, first rector at Holy Trinity, whose monument bears extensive inscriptions describing his life and work.

A complete transcription of burials at Holy Trinity Cemetery is available from the Ontario Genealogical Society:
