Oxford City Council does not directly arrange funerals or the erection of memorials. Most people choose a funeral director or memorial mason to act on their behalf.

We provide burial facilities at four cemeteries in Oxford. Our Cemeteries team offers a compassionate and professional service to assist funeral directors and families during bereavement. A Cemeteries Service manager will be present at the cemetery on the day of the burial.

How to contact the Cemeteries Team

Our opening hours are:

  • Monday to Thursday: 9am to 4pm
  • Friday: 9am to 3.30pm
  • Saturday, Sunday, and Bank Holidays: Closed

While casual callers are welcome during these times, we recommend making an appointment to ensure staff availability, especially during busy periods due to funeral workload.

For chapel viewings, please book an appointment as they are locked when not in use.

Finding a burial plot

If you have the section reference for a plot, each cemetery has a map showing the different sections to help you locate it.

If you need precise location information for a specific grave, contact us and we can email you a detailed cemetery map and section map.
