Woodland Burial

Interment of Ashes

Part of the new woodland burial area is designated as a woodland ashes glade. This means that ashes can be interred in this area either in biodegradable boxes or poured directly into the ground. The cost of this service will be the normal ashes fee.

The interments within the woodland ashes glade will not be recorded on a plan as this will be a reusable and sustainable area. However, an entry will be made in the Register of Burials on the day of interment which will record the personal details of the deceased.
