Woodlawn Cemetery is a historic cemetery located at Canandaigua, Ontario County, New York, United States.

In June 1884, officers and trustees were elected and the original 28 acres (110,000 m2) of land were purchased from Lucius Wilcox. Over the years, people left adjacent land to the cemetery which now totals 64.4 acres (261,000 m2) in the city and 7 acres (28,000 m2) in the town of Canandaigua and serves as a burial site for more than 13,000 people.

The Woodlawn Cemetery chapel was dedicated in 1910. In 2014 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[1]
