The Dublin Cemetery is an example of the fine suburban cemeteries which appeared around the Midwest in the 19th century, and has its roots in Europe, in the grand, elegantly landscaped grounds of Paris’ Pere la Chaise Cemetery. Literally translated, a cemetery is “a place of repose,” and cemeteries of this type exemplify the ideas of the time, which began to move away from the grim images of strife and suffering which characterize the 18th-century graveyards of New England and toward a more peaceful image of restful, eternal slumber.

The suburban cemeteries were created to be parks where people could come to pay their respects to the deceased, walk the tree-lined avenues, and enjoy the peace and quiet.

This guide has been created to help maintain the beauty and serenity of the cemeteries of Dublin, and to ensure their continued enjoyment for generations to come.

A complete list of burials in the Dublin Cemetery and the smaller cemeteries is available in the cemetery office. For more information, please contact the Cemetery office in Parks Operations: 6555 Shier-Rings Road, or by phone: 614.410.4700.

Columbarium at The Dublin Cemetery

The Dublin Cemetery now has a columbarium available to serve as a final resting place for cremated remains and a place of remembrance for the deceased.

The granite, above-ground structure is located adjacent to section 4A, which is at the entrance off of Monterey Drive.
The columbarium has 81 niches. Each niche is 12 inches by 12 inches and can hold up to two urns.

Many relatives and friends of the deceased wish to express their feelings by recognizing the niche of their loved ones. The City acknowledges this and asks that you do so with respect to the surrounding niches. In order to maintain the beauty of the cemetery and columbarium the City must enforce a few regulations on what can be permitted on and around the columbarium itself to prevent the abuse of this privilege.

  • All funeral flowers placed around the columbarium will be removed after five days.
  • Please be respectful to others. Do not adorn or hang items on niches that are privately owned or unoccupied.
  • Flowers may be placed on top of the columbarium in accordance with our Dublin Cemetery Guidebook. City staff will monitor the overall appearance of the Columbarium and will remove items that are unappealing or inappropriately displayed.
