Memorial Lawn Cemetery

Location: Center Township, in the city of Fairfield, at 1505 W. Burlington (U.S. Highway 34). (see township map.)

Burials: 1935 to present.

Condition: Many stone bases are tipping toward the grave, therefore the lawn mowers may shave off parts of the names and dates. The office for the cemetery is in the Shrine of Memories in Ottumwa, Iowa.

Mowed: As of 2015, mowed sporadically. Upkeep has been lacking the last couple years. There are many leaning stones, trees need trimmed and a bench in the Catholic area has much mold on it. This company also owns Memorial Lawn Cemetery in Ottumwa and other large cemeteries. Complaints regarding its upkeep may be directed to:

Iowa Securities Bureau - Regulated Industries Unit
Two Ruan Center, Fourth Floor
601 Locust St.
Des Moines, IA 50309-3738.
