Natural Burial & Ashes Interment
Oxton and Ketton, both comprise of 36 acres of wildflower meadows and historic woodland, offering beautiful, serene locations for natural burial and ashes interment.
What We Do
We offer two types of plots for Natural Burials or Ashes Internment:
WOODLAND - we have a variety of tree species, which are planted directly on the grave or ashes plot. A woodland area will encompass several years of planting and then be allowed to grow into a more mature wooded area. Although you can purchase year round, trees are planted between November & February.
WILDFLOWER MEADOW - we have an open meadow area where wild flowers are planted and offer a stunning bloom from Spring through Summer. A memorial tree can be planted close to the meadow are but not on the actual burial or ashes plot. Adjacent plots are available to purchase in the meadow.
