The parish cemetery of the Nowe Miasto parish was founded in 1817 and until 1838, when it was enlarged with a part intended for Catholics, it served only to the evangelicals. The reason for the creation of the cemetery was the liquidation of three existing cemeteries (including Saint Catherine and St. Lawrence), which areas were used for the construction of the fortifications of the Torun Fortress by the Kingdom of Prussia. Since 1945, the cemetery belongs exclusively to Catholics and is administered by the parish of Saint. Jakub, while the evangelical part was liquidated in the mid-1960s. In 2008, a historic wood frame mortuary was burnt, built in the 19th century. [source: Wikipedia, 3632119]
