City Cemetery

flagFairview Cemetery occupies 40 tranquil, pristine acres situated on Tipton’s southwest side. Of those acres, 32 are already developed, and eight more on the north side of the existing cemetery can still be developed. In addition to more than 15,000 gravesites, the cemetery is home to a mausoleum and a veterans’ memorial. 

The first five acres of Fairview Cemetery were platted on June 13, 1881. These original acres were divided into four sections known as blocks 3, 4, 5 and 6. There are now 17 platted sections in the cemetery and two private family triangles.

The Fairview Cemetery Corporation was formed June 1, 1954. On January 1, 1983, the City of Tipton assumed ownership of the cemetery for the sum of $1.00.

MausoleumCemetery Manager Diana Tomlinson oversees the maintenance of the cemetery grounds and mausoleum, funeral preparations and closings, installation of markers and monuments, and plot sales.

Families who wish to purchase a burial plot for a traditional, full burial or cremated ashes may contact Diana Tomlinson.
