About Our Cemeteries

The City of Burlington manages three cemeteries:  Lakeview, Greenmount, and Elmwood.

The Cemetery Division office is located at Lakeview Cemetery. The Lakeview office is staffed Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Grounds staff should be available on site from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Staff may also be on site on Saturdays if a burial is scheduled. Lakeview is closed to burials on all Sundays. Cemetery staff may be reached at (802) 863-2075.

Please note: Pets are NOT permitted in the Cemeteries. We have several dog parks to enjoy and dogs are allowed in our city parks but they must be leashed at all times. Dogs are prohibited from designated beaches and picnic areas. Owners are always responsible for cleaning up after their pets.

The complete list of Cemetery rules can be found in our City Ordinances

Friends of Lakeview Cemetery

The Friends of Lakeview Cemetery have completed several restoration projects thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers. These projects include:

  • Restoration of the Louisa Howard Chapel. This magnificent structure is now fully restored and open to the public.
  • Replacement of the wooden gazebo that has provided sanctuary for cemetery visitors for decades. This structure had suffered significant deterioration due to its prolonged exposure to the elements but an accurate reproduction has replaced the original structure.
  • Renovation of the historic fountain built in the mid-1800’s. A replica fountain was recently installed thanks to the Friends fundraising efforts.

To learn more about the projects or to make a donation, please contact Diana Carlisle, President, Friends of Lakeview Cemetery at (802) 862-3939.
