Natural Burial

A natural burial is an environmentally conscious way of burying a loved one.

It is much like a traditional funeral, but takes place in a wildflower or woodland setting, rather than a traditional graveyard, and only uses 100% biodegradable materials to protect the environment. Burials in our woodland include a tree and memorial plaque, while those in the wildflower meadow include a memorial plaque.

Ashes Interment

As with a natural burial, our eco-friendly ashes interment can take place in either a woodland or wildflower meadow using a biodegradable urn to protect the delicate ecosystem and support local biodiversity. Each woodland interment includes a new tree planted on the site, while a memorial plaque is included with both woodland and wildflower meadow interments.

Our Plots

We offer two types of plots for natural burials or ashes interments:

Wildflower Meadow Plot

Wildflowers are planted in our open meadow area and offer a stunning bloom from spring through summer. A memorial tree can be planted close to the meadow area but not on the actual burial or ashes plot itself. Adjacent plots are available to purchase in the meadow.

Woodland Plot

When you choose a woodland site for your natural burial or ashes interment, you can choose from 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 and February.

The tree species used as memorials at our sires are all native to the region and are commonly found in local woodlands.

Our Memorial Tree Species


The lime is at home both on a country estate and deep in the wild. Common in name only, it’s a hybrid between the small-leaved and large-leaved limes, and is a particular favourite of aphids and their many predators.


Bane of witches, diviner of the future and producer of jam, the rowan is an elegant tree with a mystical history. Its leaves and berries are a favourite for wildlife in town and country alike.


With beautiful blossom and a bounty of bright red fruits, the wild cherry – one of the prettiest of our native trees – is relished by both gardeners and wildlife.


With its catkins resembling lambs’ tails and its late summer nuts, hazel is one of the most useful of trees for its bendy stems and as a conservation saviour. And its nuts are loved by people, squirrels and hazel dormice.


Charming and domestic, the whitebeam’s fruit is a favourite of many garden birds. It’s rarely found in the wild, but is a popular ornamental tree in parks and gardens, with its lovely blossom and its russet autumn leaves.


Monumental, majestic and home to rare wildlife, the beech is an enchanting species and is known as the queen of British trees. To wander beneath its leafy canopy, with its cathedral-like branches spreading upwards, is an awe-inspiring experience.


As a symbol of fertility, the crab apple tree is associated with love and marriage. Meanwhile, it’s also a forager’s delight thanks to its small, hard fruits, which make an exquisite, jewel-coloured jelly.
