Bicester Road Cemetery

Published: 23 October 2020

The Council has reached the last stage of the programme of work on the Bicester Road cemetery which began shortly after the present Council was elected last year, and well before the waterlogging problems that occurred last winter. We have now received planning permission for a substantial new network of drains and paths, we have chosen a contractor, and we expect work to begin by the end of the month and finish by December. The plans have been drawn up by expert consultants, and are far more extensive than any of the works carried out since the cemetery was opened. This will regrettably cause some inconvenience to the families of loved ones, but will very significantly reduce the problems of waterlogging that we have experienced in the past.
