ANCIEN CIMETIERE ANGLICAN(Poste de Pompiers et de Police)Rue Charlotte
Voici le site de l'ancien cimetière anglican qui appartenait à l’église Christ-Church de Sorel. Le cimetière était borné par les rues Charlotte, Denis, Élisabeth et Hôtel Dieu. C’était au même endroit qu’était construit le poste de pompier et de police en 1918.

Profanation du cimetière anglican
Sorel-Tracy - Le cimetière anglican, situé sur la rue Du Collège (juste à côté de Club Piscine) à Sorel-Tracy, a récemment été la cible d'un ou de vandales qui ont, soit renversé ou brisé, une trentaine de pierres tombales, certaines datant des années 1833. Ce geste gratuit a été rapporté à la Sûreté du Québec, MRC du Bas-Richelieu il y quelques jours, par contre on ne sait pas quand le méfait a été commis.

Sorel cache ses Patriotes !La sépulture de Wolfred Nelson négligée depuis des lustres
Premier maire de Montréal élu par la population de la ville, chirurgien émérite, bienfaiteur, entrepreneur dynamique, réformateur des prisons de la province, député et bien sûr chef politique qui mena les Patriotes à la victoire à Saint-Denis, Wolfred Nelson occupe dans l'histoire du Québec une place qui n’est plus à démontrer. L’un des Québécois les plus éminents de son siècle. Et pourtant le site de sa sépulture, sans être laissé à l’abandon, est manifestement négligé, relégué dans un coin du cimetière protestant, entre une polyvalente et le stationnement d’un centre commercial, dans la bonne ville de Sorel…

C: 1850-1914 Adélaïde, Albert and Alfred
D: 1874 Today
 Note in this 1821 plan the first Anglican chapel. According to the research, I think the first cemetery was located near the church built 17 January 1790. The Reverend John Doty William Henry Minister of the Anglican Church of England and the Protestant Church of Congregationalism William Henry and from John Hay Montreal carpenter and mason. In recounts of Christ Church registers in Sorel, it is written for the first time deaths Marie Anne Domine March 9, 1797 "The burial was made on March 10 yesterday was too stormy for the body by John Doty". The body is buried in the Anglican cemetery. During the construction of the second Anglican church in 1843 that was down to the rear. The cemetery can be found below the remains of the current church. It is a simple hypothesis. 
  We note in this respect the land that was granted by John Kent Wells equerry to His Majesty as an agent of His Excellency Lord Aylmer Matthews to the Rev. John Jackson, Aaron Allen, William and George Nelson churchwardens of the Anglican Church Christ- Church in Sorel August 23, 1833 passed by the notary Henry Crebassa. "This is a piece of land including 132 feet deep and 66 feet wide with 6 batches located in the Borough of William Henry of the manor of Sorel it contained numbers 1-2-3-4-5- 6 ". He served for a period of about 115 years until the sale of the land to the city of Sorel in 1910. In E Tucker contract and CFC Würtele lawyer with Reverend Irwin 21 September 1910. "The old cemetery of the city Sorel has to move the stone monuments and the body by Peter Paul undertaker. " The bodies were moved to the new cemetery near the Mont St-Bernard (Fernand Lefebvre School).



 We note in this regard that a cemetery was bounded by Adelaide streets, Alfred and Albert, and back by lots adjacent street Limoges. The land was granted by Stephen Thomas to the Rev. William Anderson, March 6, 1850. The plan was designed by Robert Pilkington Royal Engineer Montreal, May 13, 1850. For many years, the land of the Anglican cemetery was under the control of Her Majesty. In the city of Sorel assessment rolls, it is mentioned "in 1914 that the lot 102 is recognized as vacant and belonging to Her Majesty, and from 1923 to 1930, occupied by the city of Sorel." In addition to other transactions were made, a sale of His Majesty to the Anglican Church, 3 December 1932; a surrender to Her Majesty to Bishop Jean-Baptiste Nadeau, 10 December 1946; a sale of Mgr Jean Baptiste Nadeau in the factory Saint-Pierre-de-Sorel; a sale of the factory Saint-Pierre-de-Sorel to Franciscan Friars Minor, 22 January 1953. Today, the last owner is the city of Sorel-Tracy.

 
  We note in this regard, Lot 23 owned by the Military Reservation by the Government of the Interior Minister the letters patent of 26 June 1874. It is sold to William Anderson Reverend Christ Church Parish January 21, 1875 in Sorel there to erect a Protestant cemetery. It is still in operation in 2015.
