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.

Please note that from the 27th March 2020, if you need to speak to someone regarding an interment at the South Hinksey Burial Ground, you should please telephone the Oxford City Cemeteries Office on 01865 252516.

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

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.


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.
