About St Mary Cemetery, Oakland

St. Mary Cemetery is rich with California chronicles and tradition. Historic in character, in 1863 St. Mary Cemetery was the first cemetery established in the community of Oakland. Located in what was then the outskirts of the city, and meeting the needs of only one parish, the parishes and the cemetery grew simultaneously. St. Mary Cemetery is now a gorgeous lush forty-two acre property. There are more than 40 sections devoted to ground burial, several community mausoleums, and facilities for both ground and above-ground inurnment of cremated remains; there are also numerous private family mausoleums on the property. The most recent development, Saint Joseph Section, provides commanding views of the Oakland and the San Francisco skyline. This section has a substantial space for full ground burial; facilities for ground and aboveground inurnment of cremated remains are also provided.
