"Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all." - Emily Dickenson
Cemeteries are a testament to a city’s rich heritage and help to maintain and preserve local history. Niagara Falls Cemeteries are no exception. The City of Niagara Falls currently administers, operates and maintains twenty cemeteries throughout the urban and rural municipality.
Often noted as some of the most beautiful and well kept cemeteries in North America, the City of Niagara Falls Cemetery Services takes exceptional pride in their work. For additional information on available services, visit the Cemetery Services section.
Fairview and Lundy's Lane cemeteries are the largest and most active, while Drummond Hill has the most historical significance and also remains semi-active. Several cemeteries currently maintained by the Cemetery Services were originally identified as abandoned pioneer farms and church yards.
In an ongoing effort to provide exceptional service and maintain historically accurate information, Cemetery staff continues to search for information related to the original owners and names of the deceased buried in the pioneer cemeteries. Should you or someone you know have old records or related information, please contact Cemetery Services at Fairview Cemetery at 905-354-4721 or by visiting the Contact page.
