Queen of Heaven
On June 6, 1960, the Diocese of Buffalo purchased 125 acres on Tonawanda Creek Road in the Town of Lockport. It was thought that this cemetery would serve Catholics in southern Niagara and northern Erie counties. The cemetery was officially consecrated by Bishop Burke in 1962.
A tri-sided monument with five mysteries of the rosary sculpted on each side graces the central green space of the symmetrical landscaping. The two-sided monument honoring St. Anne and Our Lady of Fatima stands on one side of the center as balance for the monument honoring the Immaculate Conception and St. Therese of Lisieux. Tonawanda Creek flanks the back perimeter of the property.
Queen of Heaven Cemetery offers an office/chapel combination, a chapel mausoleum, and lawn crypt garden. Glass-fronted niches adorn the Good Sheppard corridor between the office and Queen of Heaven Chapel. This corridor leads to the court yard where our Lady of Peace Mausoleum is located. St. Augustine Lawn Crypt Garden is located adjacent to the office/chapel area.
Brand new in 2017: St. Francis Natural Burial Garden.
These new additions greatly expand the burial options at the cemetery and will respond to the growing needs of Catholics in the area.
