For years we have been transforming the hedgerows, small fields and rolling meadows of this gentle valley near Thornbury into a woodland cemetery for future generations to remember and enjoy. Our woodland cemetery offers a truly beautiful alternative to traditional options and offers individual or family plots for burial or ashes.
Alongside the cemetery sits our private chapel and adjacent reception rooms. These are available to help your family create a very private and unique burial or cremation service.
Friends and family are welcome to visit the woodland on any day of the year to pay their respects and enjoy the serenity and wildlife, which exists among native trees and plants. As well as being a unique place of rest, the Woodland Cemetery is an ongoing environmental investment in the future. We plant trees including Oak, Chestnut, Holly, Rowan, Silver Birch, Cherry, Lime, Ash, Elder and Beech as well as a range of wildflowers.
This plant life encourages wildlife such as buzzards, owls, partridges, pheasants and deer. In times of increasing environmental awareness, the Memorial Woodland offers a place where the planting of indigenous woodland helps reduce your carbon footprint, and where materials and methods used for burial are environmentally sound wherever possible.
We only ever hold one service a day at our chapel and reception rooms, giving your family and friends all the time, space and privacy they need as they come together to remember and celebrate the life of the departed.
The atmosphere of peace and calm that guests experience as they drive through the winding lane to our woodlands continues throughout the whole day. The service is conducted in the way you wish either by your own minister or by one of our celebrants, using the serenity of our beautiful Georgian buildings to create a service that reflects the life and personality of your loved one.
Following the service, there is a short walk to the woodland cemetery, where the interment and final goodbyes take place, or arrangements are made for cremation at the local crematorium. Everybody returns to the reception rooms for refreshments and the opportunity to chat, reminisce and share each other's company. This ensures the entire day flows without interruption or having to travel to other venues.
Families often tell us the difference that our approach has made, turning a difficult day into one which they look back on as a special celebration.
