Hill Cemetery, Church Cowley Road, Oxford.
Grave reference: B1 no.147.
Soothill died on Tuesday 14 May 1935. His funeral was held at the Wesley Memorial Church in Oxford on Friday 17 May and he was interred at Rose Hill Cemetery. His grave is approximately 40 metres WNW of the cemetery chapel. It is marked by a simple rectangle of low granite kerbs, engraved as below. The letters are inlaid with lead, but about half of the inlays have fallen out, and the kerbs have sunk below their original level so that the inscriptions are partly obscured.
The first occupant of the grave was Soothill's wife Lucy, four years his elder, who died at the age of 74 and was buried on 30 March 1931.
