Oakwood Cemetery was created in 1862 with the first idea for it coming from the women of Austin. They believed that Oakwood should be a quiet, dignified place of rest for their loved ones.
We at Oakwood strive daily to keep the cemetery as it was intended to be. We try to give the cemetery the highest level of care, while ever mindful of the cost of the care. This has made us the financially secure cemetery we are today.
Oakwood Cemetery sets aside 25% of the proceeds from lot sales into an account for the perpetual care of the cemetery.
Oakwood Cemetery is a non-profit association governed by lot owners.
Oakwood has lots available in all areas of the cemetery. The older areas of the cemetery with their beautiful oak trees and history, or the newer area with its more modern styling. Whatever your choice, we can help you with your needs.
Visit Oakwood. See the grounds for yourself and if you have any questions or want information, come to the office and talk with us. We’re here to help, however we can. Oakwood Cemetery is non-denominational, non-sectarian and open to all.
