A Place to Remember

We're Open. We're here for you.

Welcome to Lakewood

For nearly 150 years, people have come together to honor, remember and reflect at Lakewood. We care deeply about the families and communities we serve, and we're here to be of service. We invite you to explore this website or connect with us to learn more about what Lakewood has to offer.

Why Lakewood

Honoring life is more important now than ever – and although there are limitations on how we can physically come together, there are still a variety of ways you can memorialize someone you have lost, or make plans for how you want to be remembered.

Our gates are open every day from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Our office and mausoleums are also open during regular hours. Please wear a mask while inside of our buildings.

To locate a loved one, visit the office or use our burial search.

While visiting, we ask that you respect the sacred nature of this space by following cemetery etiquette. Thank you.

Stay in Touch

Sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date on any COVID-related policy changes and guidelines that impact Lakewood. We’ll also share events, history and art features, and resources for you and your loved ones.

At Lakewood, we believe it’s time to take a fresh look into the ways we approach death and remembering.  To reimagine how we come together to honor and memorialize life.  From Memorial Day to Earth Day events to lakeside cremation gardens to Lantern-Lighting Celebrations.  We invite you to come see the possibilities for yourself.

Why Lakewood

Since 1871, Lakewood has been helping families honor, celebrate and remember their loved ones in a place of rich history and extraordinary beauty that will be protected and cared for forever.
