St Sepulchre's Cemetery is located in Jericho, central Oxford, England.

This cemetery was opened in Walton Street, Oxford in 1848 as a parish cemetery for four of the twelve parishes of Oxford (St Giles, St Paul, St Michael, and St Mary Magdalen). All the existing Oxford churchyards were overcrowded after many hundreds of years of burials, and two other cemeteries Osney Cemetery and Holywell Cemetery.[1] were opened in the same year to cater for the other eight Oxford parishes. In 1855, new burials were forbidden in all Oxford city churchyards, apart from in existing vaults.

The cemetery was originally surrounded on two sides by the Lucy factory, the former Eagle Ironworks, but this industrial site has now been redeveloped for housing.

St Sepulchre's Cemetery itself became overcrowded later in Victorian times.[2] The cemetery is now unused and had become overgrown, and so the Friends of St Sepulchre's Cemetery group was formed who regularly meet to clear vegetation from the grounds, making it a more hospitable open space and protecting the memorials from damage.

Before the cemetery was created, Walton Manor Farm used to be on this site.[3]

Access to the cemetery is through iron gates attached to a Gothic lodge off Walton Street.

The cemetery is listed Grade II on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.[4]
