Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Woodland Burial?

Our woodland burials combine a final resting place with the conservation of nature. Embracing the tradition of nature reserves in protecting our countryside, we aired working to create new areas of diverse flora and fauna by the planting of trees, native to the British Isles, in close proximity to our plots. This is not just a symbol of life, strength, and family continuity; it also contributes to the woodland's development, offering a lasting and evolving memorial for loved ones, a lasting gift to the environment for future generations.
