Burial Ground

Although located next to St Laurence Church and churchyard, the burial ground is unconsecrated and run by the Parish Council. The burial ground is available for the burial of parishioners of any or no religious denomination. A plot in the burial ground can be purchased when needed for a burial.

A plan of the burial ground (including the names of those buried) is available here.

A current list of fees for grave plots and burials is given below.

Wildflower Meadow

Early in 2009, work started to create a wildflower meadow in an unused part of the burial ground. Work is progressing well and the meadow is flourishing. Photographs are available in the gallery on the South Hinksey website.

Headstones

The Parish Council commissioned the first professional inspection of the safety of the headstones in the burial ground in May 2017 and the contractor’s report can be read here.

New plots

The Parish Council has commissioned The CDS Group to create a design for additional burial plots in the hitherto unused part of the burial ground. You can see an initial design that would provide another 165 burial plots here .
