In 2009-2010, the City of Quebec restored the cemetery, taking great care to preserve the spirit of the place. A peaceful haven in the heart of the Saint-Jean-Baptiste quarter, the cemetery still has the feeling of being a corner of England. There are currently 314 gravestones on which the names of some 580 people are inscribed. Worn by time, they tell the stories of the deceased: infant deaths, epidemics, death by drowning... Three hundred and fourteen is a small number if we consider that the cemetery served, from 1772 to 1860, as a burial site for the Protestant Anglophone population of Quebec City, which was flourishing at that time. St. Matthew's cemetery and the church next door - now converted into a library - have been designated as an historic site by the Government of Quebec. (from a plaque at the site)
