A necropolis is a large ancient cemetery with elaborate tomb stones. Toronto Necropolis is not that large and the tomb stones are not anything crazy. Mount pleasant cemetery is definitely larger with all kinds of tomb stones, monuments and mausoleums and a better choice if you want to see elaborate grave sites. On the other hand, the unique thing about this cemetery is the old tomb stones and the well known political figures, such as Jack Layton, buried there. The engraving on a good number of stones was worn down and you could not read what was written on them. The oldest burial site that I spotted was from 1854. A nice small church/funeral chamber is also located at the entrance of the cemetery.
