 COVID-19 Update: Mausoleum Visitors

The City of Thorold is working to ensure the safety and well-being of our residents. In order to properly track and clean the mausoleum between guests, visitations are by appointment only Monday through Friday from 7:30AM to 3:00PM. 

Please call 905-227-6613 to book an appointment. 

Appointments will be required until the Niagara Region returns to the Orange Zone. 

The Cemetery Department operates and cares for 11 cemeteries throughout the community; nine of which are historical, and two are still active. Lakeview Cemetery, established in 1886, lies hidden in a secluded, wooded area on the east side of the Welland Canal, close to the Niagara Escarpment. To the west of Lock 7, Old Lakeview has a spectacular view of the ships as they start their decent down the escarpment and out to Lake Ontario. On clear days, guests are graced with Toronto’s skyline, dancing along the horizon.

A variety of wildlife is often viewed scampering throughout the grounds and amongst the mausoleum and columbarium. Lakeview, painted with its many flower gardens, shrubberies and trees, provides a serene resting place for your loved ones, as well as a peaceful atmosphere for reflection.

A staff member that is experienced and devoted to easing the business of difficult necessity is at your service from Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  For an appointment, please call 905-227-6613.
