Flowers on grave

A Resting Place for your Loved Ones

We operate and care for 11 cemeteries throughout the city of Thorold; two active cemeteries, and nine historical cemeteries. 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.

Donate a Bench or Plant a Memory 

The City of Thorold Commemorative Bench and Tree Program provides individuals and organizations the opportunity to purchase a bench or tree in memory of a loved one. Benches and/or trees can be placed within parks, cemeteries open spaces, waterfront and trails owned and managed by the City of Thorold subject to City approval.
