Grosse Île and the Irish Memorial National Historic Site of Canada

List of Names on the Memorial

If some of your ancestors passed away at the quarantine station at Grosse-Île, their names might appear on the memorial erected by Parks Canada in 1998. This monument was placed close to the western cemetery, and bears the names of people who died either on Grosse-Île or on the boats: immigrants, employees and sailors. Of the 7553 people buried here, 1545 are still unknown. In their memory, the same number of boats were engraved on the glass. Don't forget – only the names of the deceased are on this list.
