Linwood History

A quiet place of reflection

Linwood History

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.  

Currently, a 12 member board of directors makes final decisions on cemetery operations based on the best interest of the association.  Current board members include Brad Chalmers, Dennis Avenarius, Ken Miller, Don Moody, Charles Glab, Ryan Bryte, Robin O'Connor, Myra DeLong, Susan Hess, Tim Butler, and Wallace Brown.


Avenue of Flags

A quiet place of reflection

Linwood History

In memory of all veterans buried at Linwood Cemetery, we have established our beautiful Avenue of Flags.  This consists of a 5' x 8' American flag being flown on a 20 ' flagpole, with the name of the veteran placed on a tag attached to the flagpole.  Established  in 1978, the Avenue of Flags has expanded to over 325 flags flown  throughout the cemetery.  From Memorial Day through July 4 the flags will be flown as a special salute to those who served.   If you would like to have a flag flown in memory of a veteran, please email or call the office to inquire about the process in getting this done.

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.
