Arranging a funeral

Q: How do I arrange a funeral at a woodland burial ground?

Arranging a funeral at one of our woodland burial grounds is exactly the same as organising a funeral with your local Funeral Director.

Our qualified Funeral Directors are based on-site at each of our grounds and will arrange a suitable time to visit you and discuss the funeral arrangements, or you can visit us at our woodland locations. They will guide and support you throughout, taking care of all of the arrangements on your behalf.

We believe that every funeral held at our woodland burial grounds should be unique to the individual. There are many different ways a funeral can celebrate the individuality of the person who has died and we can assist you with all aspects of funeral arrangement, including transport for the day of the funeral, music, flowers, catering and any special wishes you may have for the funeral service.

Q: Can I have a religious service?

Of course, our Funeral Directors have experience in arranging funerals across all religions and cultures, including traditional and humanist services.

All personal beliefs, faiths or cultures can be easily accommodated. We can also organise for individual burial or ashes plots to be blessed if you wish.

Q: Can a funeral service / ceremony be held within the grounds?

Yes, funeral services can be held at all of our woodland burial grounds.

Each of our woodland burial grounds has its own unique woodland service centre, specially designed to provide an intimate and peaceful setting in which to hold a funeral service for a loved one. With views across the surrounding countryside, the woodland service centres are relaxed and informal venues for families to meet before the funeral service and spend time afterwards.   

In the spring and summer, many families also choose to hold outdoor services at the plot-side.
