The Fort Massey Cemetery was established c. 1778, in conjunction with Fort Massey, to serve as a burial place for the garrison of the Fort. Today it contains the remains of those who served in Canada's military as well as the remains soldiers dating back to the British occupation of Halifax. In some cases relatives of military personnel and certain civilians, who had involvement with the military, were also interred there.
