About Us

Linwood History

Linwood Cemetery opened in 1870 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.  

Currently, a 12 member board of directors makes final decisions on cemetery operations based on the best interest of the association.  A number of famous people have been interred at Linwood Cemetery. These include Iowa Governor Stephen P. Hempstead, for whom Hempstead High School is named, a U.S. Senator William Boyd Allison, and former Speaker of the US House David Bremner Henderson. 

Avenue of Flags

In memory of all veterans buried in Linwood Cemetery, we have established our beautiful Avenue of Flags.This consists of a 5' x 8' American flag flown on a 20 foot flagpole with the veteran's name on a tag attached to the flagpole.  The flags line the roadways of Linwood Cemetery and are flown from Memorial Day through July 4th. Established in 1978 with just 50 flags, Linwood now displays over 240 flags in honor of veterans who hav served our country.  If you wish to have a flag fly in memory of a loved one in May of 2018 please contact our office to purchase a flagpole and a flag.  We are honored to have the Avenue of Flags as a true memorial to those who have served.

Holiday Flower Orders

With fall quickly approaching, before we know it, Christmas will be here.  Linwood Cemetery is now accepting orders for Christmas Wreaths, Grave Blankets, Monument Saddles, and Poinsettia Bouquets.  Christmas Wreaths come in two sizes and are decorated with frosted pine cones and a waterproof red velvet bow.  Grave Blankets cover the grave and are decorated with several frosted pine cones and 2 waterproof red velvet bows.  Our Silk Poinsettia Bouquets work beautifully in your cemetery vase.   Our staff will place each wreath, grave blanket, saddle and/or bouquet on your loved ones grave as the weather permits before Christmas.  Wreaths are also available for your home decorating.  Linwood Cemetery will also place wreaths in any of the local area cemeteries.
