Registered to Ontario Realty Corporation. No longer in use. In 1890 the first burial took place at the Mimico Branch Asylum as it was first called because it was an annex to the Provincial Lunatic Asylum in Toronto. The last burial was in 1974. The hospital was closed in 1979. In total there were 1525 interments. Fourteen people have been disinterred by family leaving 1511 known graves. The records for these burials appear in death records for both the Provincial Lunatic Asylum and Mimico. There were Roman Catholic and Protestant sections. There are 10 infants recorded, born to inmates, who were stillborn or only lived a few weeks as well as one of the mothers. There are 154 flat grave markers for the period between 1957 and 1973. The rest of the area is grass covered with small cement row markers with letters or numbers on them along the perimeters. Not all markers are visible and markers for individual graves are under the sod.

This cemetery is all but abandoned. The land was sold to a numbered company in 2000 and it proposed to build a crematorium there but this has not happened. The area has been designated a heritage property A small group has been formed called the Lakeshore Asylum Cemetery Project. Their goal is to restore ad preserve the cemetery. They started with a Restoration day in 2005 and now have an annual spring clean up. For more information about the cemetery and the project go to www.asylumbythelake.com.
