Property Maps

The original plat for Oak Hill Cemetery was laid out in 1871 by Civil Engineer William Barker The shape and area of the cemetery shifted and changed as the fledgling City of Birmingham became more established and defined. In its current state, Oak Hill Cemetery is divided into block sections. Initially, the cemetery was laid out with 15' by 30' family plots, separated by eight-foot walkways. All of the original lots run from south to north. Once the City grew beyond the cemetery, new areas in the northeast corner and the southeast corner were added in, and the new lots aligned with the streets. There are twenty-eight separate blocks. The attached maps are digital recreations of the hand-drawn maps and are updated periodically to reflect lot sales and feature changes.
