Welcome to the Fairview Cemetery in Shawnee Oklahoma! The Fairview Cemetery was commissioned on June 21st, 1897 and has been in consistent use since that time. There were graves in use before that time but the official commission was on that date. Staff at the Cemetery provides for the needs of individuals requiring immediate and pre-need services as well as maintaining the Cemetery's grounds, facilities, equipment and records. The Cemetery contains nearly 80 acres of space on the eastern side of Shawnee.
Cemetery Rules and Guidelines
Out of respect no pets are allowed in the Cemetery, we ask that those who enjoy walking at Fairview to respect any funerals that are currently in session. Additionally there are guidelines for headstones, types and number as well as what vases are used on the markers.
