Guide to Funeral Directors in Oxford

The university town of Oxford lies some 52 miles from London. It is the county town of Oxfordshire, fast growing and ethnically diverse, with residents of all cultures and religious beliefs.

There are about 20 funeral directors in Oxford and the surrounding area, both independent and national chains, operating across the city to serve this diverse community. The funeral directors in Oxford service a population of around 150,000 inhabitants; 12 of these establishments lie within a five mile radius of the city centre.

There is a privately run crematorium on Bayswater Road, to the north east on the outskirts of the city, which opened in 1939. It has wheelchair access and extensive parking. In recent years a new crematorium, South Oxfordshire Memorial Park and Crematorium, has opened in Garford which is just ten miles to the south west of Oxford. This facility is also privately run.

Oxford City Council offers facilities for burial in four cemeteries: Botley, on North Hinksey Lane to the west, Headington, on Dunstan Road to the north east, Rose Hill, on Church Cowley Road to the south east, and Wolvercote on Banbury Road to the north.

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.
