About Linwood Cemetery

Linwood Cemetery opened in 1875 to serve the public in the area surrounding Dubuque, Iowa.  It has been operated as a non profit cemetery by the Linwood Cemetery Association since then.  

A Quiet Place of Reflection

Welcome to Linwood Cemetery.  We hope you find peace amid these quiet and beautiful grounds.  Linwood Cemetery is an All-Faiths Perpetual Care cemetery sacredly devoted to the respectful burial and memory of your loved ones.  We offer the choice of a traditional burial plot or a mausoleum for your final resting place.  Burial plots are available in most areas of the cemetery.   When purchasing a burial plot, you’re purchasing the right to be buried there but not purchasing the land itself.  A staff member will answer any questions you have in regard to the burial planning process.
