Woodland Burials

This service is available in specified woodland burial areas in the following cemeteries:

  • Botley Cemetery
  • Headington Cemetery (limited availability)
  • Wolvercote Cemetery

In these cases no headstones or artificial memorials are permitted. A selected tree or shrub will be planted on the grave along with woodland flowers if requested.

All graves are of a single depth, and help with preparation and planting of the tree will be considered.

These areas will be allowed to develop into woodlands of remembrance.

A small grave marker containing the name of the deceased and the date of death can be placed at the base of the tree.
