The Manchester Cemetery Company was founded in 1858. The first lot sale was recorded in 1860. Additional land was purchased or donated throughout the years and now totals 35 acres. There are over 8,000 loved ones eternally at rest and 300 plus Armed Services members lay at rest in Oakland Cemetery, Manchester Iowa.
The Manchester Cemetery Company’s mission is to preserve and honor the memory of those who have entrusted us with their final resting place. Oakland Cemetery is a place of solace and beauty to memorialize loved ones. Good stewardship of this beloved ground for future generations is the highest priority of the Manchester Cemetery Company.
Your gift to the Manchester Cemetery Perpetual Care Endowment is invested and grows forever to provide future financial stability to the Oakland Cemetery. We welcome gifts of any amount. Donate $500.00 or more and honor your loved one with their name inscribed on the memorial monument.
