Description: Elmbank/Fifth Line Cemetery, located in Toronto Township, was opened in 1833 to serve many of the earliest Catholic settlers living in rural areas to the northwest of Toronto. The cemetery was known by various names: Fifth Line Burial Ground, St. Bernard's, St. Patrick's, St. Peter's, St. Kevin's and The Sacred Heart of Jesus Churchyard. The first recorded burial is that of Charles Dougherty, who died in 1833, aged 17 years. The cemetery was in use until 1937. Pearson International Airport took over the land in the 1950s. With the expansion of airport facilities the cemetery was relocated in 2001 to the consecrated ground of Assumption Cemetery in Mississauga.
