We take care of the city cemeteries and the funeral activities of Uppsala city, regardless of membership or philosophy of life.
The Swedish Church is the head of the funeral activities throughout the country, except in the city of Stockholm and Tranås.
Uppsala Cemeteries are responsible for providing Burial site , burial, cremation and local for funeral ceremonies. This is paid through the funeral fee which everyone pays whether you are a member of the Swedish church or not. If the deceased was a member of the Swedish church, the church's other services are free.
Look for the pink marking on the grave's care stick
Many of the burial sites at the Old Cemetery have an associated care stick.
If the aluminum sticker has a pink marking, it means that one or more buried persons at that grave site are included on this page. If the marker has two pink markings, it is also included in a audio and video guided walk.
THE SITE IS CREATED BY:
Henrik Zetterberg (design, layout and image collection)
Jarl Tjernquist (biographies)
