Royal Oak Cemetery is owned and operated by the City of Royal Oak.


At the intersection of Crooks Road, North Main Street and Rochester Road, is the bottom tip of a triangular piece of cemetery land which extends north to 12 Mile Road and makes up two cemeteries, Royal Oak Cemetery and St. Mary's Cemetery.

This triangular piece of land has had many growth changes since the first 6 acres was donated by Daniel Burrows in 1826. In 1857 this burial ground was officially taken over by the Royal Oak Township. Two acres at the southerly tip were sold in 1874 to the Catholic Society of Saint Mary's Parish. Royal Oak is a perpetual care cemetery, and is in excellent condition and now maintained by the town of Royal Oak.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
