Many Irish immigrants who arrived in Halifax prior to Canada's Confederation and many of their descendants are buried there, as well as Canada's fourth Prime Minister, Sir John Sparrow Thompson. Among the more well-known families there are the Kennys of Halifax (Hon. Sir Edward Kenny, Thomas Edward Kenny, etc.)[citation needed]

The cemetery contains war graves of nine Canadian service personnel, six of World War I and three of World War II.[1]
