Oakwood Cemetery was established in 1869 and is Raleigh's oldest, private, non-profit cemetery. It is a short walk from the North Carolina Capitol and Governor's Mansion.

Oakwood cemetery has a wonderful website with a search feature for burial records and a map of the cemetery.

Historic Oakwood Cemetery contains a special area within its 102 acres, the Confederate Cemetery, located on the original two and one-half acres given for that purpose by Henry Mordecai in 1867. Herein lie nearly 1,500 Confederate soldiers. Adjoined with the Confederate Cemetery is the impressive House of Memory. Erected in 1935 to commemorate those brave soldiers of the Confederacy, today its bronze memorial plaques recognize the many North Carolina service men and women who have served our country in times of conflict.
