The Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation Department maintains the grounds and the Town’s records for four local cemeteries. Two of our Chapel Hill Cemeteries are historical cemeteries with deep cultural value to the community:
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Property Office manages Memorial Grove.
Memorial Grove, UNC-Chapel Hill's garden for the scattering and interment of ashes
Located at the corner of Country Club Road and South Road, adjacent to Old Chapel Hill Cemetery.
The garden is reserved for use by individuals with a university affiliation, and for immediate family members of those individuals.
