Caring for your loved ones for over 180 years
At Lithopolis Cemetery we believe that everyone should be treated like family. Most of our board, staff and contractors have family buried at LCA. So we always have our loved ones' best interest in mind, and with that, your best interest too.
Our decisions on care of the grounds, maintenance of the facilities and future development are all with keeping in mind of our loved ones who are buried at Lithopolis Cemetery.
Let us help you provide a memorialization and permanence of your loved ones life. We can help you create a lasting tribute to honor their legacy.
Lithopolis Cemetery has helped families in our community since 1830, and the same service, respect and compassion that LCA was known for then, is still very much evident today. Every member of our staff works with the families we have the opportunity to serve to ensure that they are gently assisted through the burial process. We want the families to know that their concerns and thoughts are listened to and considered. We want them to be able to see value in what they did and know that they did everything right.
We are proud of our history and our beautiful cemetery — from our spacious Chapel Mausoleum to the Wagnalls Sarcophagus and all of our beautiful grounds. We welcome you to learn more about Lithopolis Cemetery through the links provided in this website. We are always happy to answer any questions you might have about LCA and we encourage you to call or visit our facility.
LCA became an independent cemetery in 2004 and is no longer associated with the Wagnalls Foundation or Library.
Not all records of the Lithopolis Cemetery Association are found in the above link. We are adding information and pictures as time allows.

Spaces Still Available
Many think that our 1996 Mausoleum is full, but quite the contrary! Interior and exterior, crypts and niches are still for sale. Call Jennifer at 614-837-4535 for pricing information or visit this link.
Through continued efforts of the Board of Directors to improve the LCA grounds, in the fall of 2013 areas around Wagnalls Addition, the entrance hill and the hill in the original section were cut away and new pavement was laid. In 2012, Lithopolis Cemetery paved along the back side of our Wagnalls II Addition, providing our families with easier access to their loved ones buried in these areas.
In the spring of 2015, the Board has also committed to a new seal coat for all roads throughout the grounds.
Lithopolis Cemetery makes it simple for you to order floral arrangements to take care of all seasons of the year at one time to ensure your loved one’s burial space always looks its best. We are constantly looking at ways to make things easier for our families, and we’re sure you’ll appreciate this service. Each season features an assortment of beautiful bouquets. If you desire a specific color, please indicate it on your order and we’ll try our best to accommodate your wishes. Each bouquet will be ordered just for you and shipped at the proper time for our installation on your loved one’s burial space.
To order, please call us at (614) 837-4535. If you prefer, you can download the order form using Adobe, print and fill it out, and either drop by Lithopolis Cemetery with your form and payment, or mail it to us at:

Grounds Cleaned Twice A Year
Please note that as per LCA rules listed on this site, on a sign at our entrance and in information given to clients when they purchase with LCA, we clean our grounds, including the mausoleum, twice a year.
In November following Veteran's Day, all spring and summer flowers as well as flags are removed from graves, crypts and niches and vases are turned down. On or around March 15, all fall and Christmas arrangements are removed.
Generally we put up a reminder yard sign as you enter the grounds about 6 weeks in advance to remind everyone that the date is approaching.
Arrangements will be placed in a dumpster on premises for approximately two weeks following removal. After that time, they are taken to the dump.
Field of Flags
The Lithopolis Cemetery and Boy Scout Troop #241 joined together to pay tribute to those that lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Each flag had the names of 5 people who were killed in the tragedy, equaling nearly 600 flags.
