Cemetery Operations

The City of Red Wing is responsible for maintaining and operating two cemeteries:

  • Burnside Cemetery, which is located on the south side of Highway 61 in the Burnside area
  • Oakwood Cemetery, which is located atop a bluff in south Red Wing

Please visit the Cemetery Records & Information page for information about cemetery documentation records, such as burial records, purchase documentation, perpetual flower sales, and lot transfer facilitation.


Summer Hours

Both Oakwood and Burnside Cemeteries are open to the public daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Winter Hours

Beginning with the first snowfall or the change from Daylight Savings (whichever comes first), the cemeteries switch to their winter hours. Both cemeteries are then open to the public weekdays only from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. In addition, the cemeteries are also open these same hours on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

After Hours & Weekends

After hours (3 p.m. to 6 p.m.) and on weekends, visitors may gain access by checking out a key from a designated location that will be posted on the cemetery gates.
