Group Tours of Lake View Cemetery

Lake View Cemetery is private property, and all visitors are asked to respect the privacy of our families and their family members buried here. While still an active cemetery, we do encourage the general public to visit the cemetery.

Lake View CemeteryOur rules and regulations permit public tours, hikes and picnics, as long as they do not interfere with or disrupt interment services. Advance permission and scheduling for these activities are required by Cemetery management, which may be obtained by contacting the Community Outreach Department at 216-421-2687, or by emailing Mary Krohmer at mkrohmer@lakeviewcemetery.com. Through advance scheduling, our Community Relations Department will be able to assist in meeting your expectations for your visit to Lake View, including informing you of road closures, funeral/wedding schedules and other groups that will be visiting Lake View that day. The earlier your visit is scheduled, the better chance of getting the date and time you request.
