By the beginning of the 19th century, the Lazarevskoye Cemetery of the Alexander Nevsky Lavra was overcrowded, and it was decided to allocate a new site for burial. The cemetery, originally called Novo-Lazarevsky, was laid in 1823. In 1869-1871 in the northern part of the Novo-Lazarevsky cemetery a church-tomb was built, consecrated in the name of the miraculous icon of the Tikhvin Mother of God. The money for the construction of the church in the Byzantine-Russian style was donated by the merchants Polezhaev, for whose family members 20 places with 13 graves were allocated in the tomb. In 1876, the New Lazarevskoye cemetery was renamed Tikhvin. The church was closed in 1931 and remade by post office.

Established in 1823, some of the notables buried here are:
