Lake View Cemetery, located in the vibrant University Circle area, was organized in 1869. We are considered “Cleveland’s Outdoor Museum and Arboretum.” It’s Cleveland’s historical, horticultural, architectural, sculptural and geological gem. Our magnificent collection of trees, shrubs and plants make for an exceptional green space in an urban area. This “green space” provides a wonderful refuge for birds and small animals, as well as a showplace of extraordinary architectural and sculptural treasures.

As a non-sectarian cemetery, Lake View is open for burials of all races, religions and walks of life. The Cemetery is the final resting place of over 104,000 people. It is a place to celebrate the lives of those people, each with a story to tell. With nearly 70 acres remaining for future development, Lake View will continue to inter people for the next 100 years.
