The church has never held such ceremonies as a baptism or a wedding – only the funeral rites and burial services of of the dead of the Imperial family, or of the commanders of the fortress. In 1896, next to the cathedral, another location was built, the Grand Ducal Shrine. From 1908 to 1915, 13 members of the Imperial Family were buried in the Crypt, including 8 graves moved from the Cathedral. In the summer of 1998, on the 80th anniversary of the execution of the last Tsar, Nicholas the 2nd, and his family, their remains were laid to rest here. In September 2006, the remains of Maria Fyodorovna were reburied next to the grave of her husband, Alexander III.
