“Death is not the opposite of life but a part of it.”

Haruki Murakami

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. Today, we’re sparking new conversations and creating deeply meaningful experiences that bring more awareness and intention to the full circle of life. We invite you to discover and explore Lakewood for yourself.

We’re here for you.

Despite that death is a certainty for us all, it can be difficult to discuss and even more painful to face. Whether you need immediate support when a loved one has died or are exploring possibilities as you think and plan ahead, we’re here to help you make choices that reflect what matters to you most—and make it as easy and seamless as possible.

Honoring a life can take many forms.

As society becomes more virtual and families more dispersed, we need places and ways to reconnect to what’s meaningful and important. Lakewood offers a vibrant array of events, ceremonies and gatherings that help you celebrate life and keep memories alive, all year round.

The beauty is breathtaking.

Since its founding in 1871, Lakewood has been a hidden gem in the heart of Minneapolis. Through the years, leading architects and landscape designers have added to the experience with a deep respect for the natural beauty of the setting. From the stunning byzantine Memorial Chapel to the magnificently modern Garden Mausoleum, visiting Lakewood is an experience in itself.
