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.
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 in 2017 displayed over 240 flags in honor of veterans who have 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.
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.
