Woodlawn Cemetery is owned and operated by Canandaigua Cemetery Association.


Woodlawn Cemetery traces its history back to a meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Village of Canandaigua on May 16th, 1884, when immediate action was taken to establish a modern cemetery. A resolution was adopted calling a meeting of citizens to be held on the 22nd day of May, 1884. A committee was directed to proceed with the organization of the Cemetery Association. At a meeting held on June 9th, 1884, officers and trustees were elected.

On June 17, 1884, a tract of 28 acres of land located on the west side of Pearl Street was purchased and the grounds were named "Woodlawn". Over time, additional land was acquired totaling nearly 75 acres.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
