Private property cemeteries in the City of Bryan
Recently the topic of private property cemeteries within the City of Bryan and the City’s role in their operation has received attention. As a result, the City would like to clarify some facts regarding the City and private property cemeteries.
The City of Bryan does not maintain cemeteries located on private property owned or operated by individuals or private entities.
Private entities that own and operate public cemeteries located on private property are responsible for maintaining those cemeteries.
Just like other private property owners in the City of Bryan, owners of land containing private cemeteries are responsible for maintaining their private property in compliance with City Code.
The City of Bryan does maintain three public cemeteries, owned by the City of Bryan, two of which are active. The Bryan City Cemetery and the Oakwood Cemetery are the active cemeteries. The inactive cemetery is the Yellow Fever Cemetery. For more information on these cemeteries visit the City’s website at the following link: City of Bryan Public Cemeteries
