About Us

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.  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 at Linwood Cemetery, we have established our beautiful Avenue of Flags.  This consists of 5' x 8' American flags being flown on 20 ft flagpoles, with the veteran's name on a tag attached to the flagpole.  The flags fly from Memorial Day through July 4th.  This year over 325 flags are flying throughout the cemetery.

If you wish to have a flag fly in memory of your loved one, you can either donate the flag you received from the Veterans Administration and purchase a flagpole, or purchase a flag from Linwood along with a flagpole.  

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.
