Cemeteries Division

The city's Cemetery Division respectfully provides necessary and requested services and products to bereaved, at-need, and pre-need families in a cost-effective manner.

The New Evergreen Cemetery has a Citizen's Memorial Wall where citizens can be honored.

The Cemetery Division only regulates cemeteries owned and operated by the City of Winston-Salem, which are Woodland and New Evergreen Cemeteries. Privately owned, for-profit cemeteries are regulated by the North Carolina Cemetery Commission in Raleigh, NC. Family-owned private cemeteries and church cemeteries within the city are regulated by their own appointed boards.

The Cemetery Office for both Woodland and New Evergreen cemeteries is located at 2124 New Walkertown Road. For information about our cemeteries, please contact the office at City Link: 336-727-8000.
