Bird Nesting Boxes

birdboxBird nesting boxes provide a welcome refuge for the myriad bird species that are found at our burial grounds.

Placed on established or mature trees, these nesting boxes are a wonderful way to pay tribute to a loved one, in the knowledge that in doing so they are nurturing new life and providing protection for native and visiting bird species that might otherwise find it challenging to raise their offspring.

Several native species such as members of the Tit family, Finches, Goldcrests, Chiffchaffs and other Warblers, Robins and other Flycatchers, Dunnocks, Redwings, Fieldfares and other Thrushes, Waxwings, Wrens, Woodpeckers and summer visitors such as the Blackcap, Yellowhammer and other members of the Bunting family, as well as the odd owl have been spotted in the surrounding woodlands, fields and on the burial grounds themselves, with even a rare visiting Hoopoe spotted near to one of our grounds.

The tabs for the individual burial grounds on the left show details and price lists of all items at each of our grounds.

Please note that our bird nesting boxes are produced by local craftsmen, using offcuts from donated waste wood material. Each nesting box is hand made and the materials used (and therefore the patterns of each item) vary greatly, meaning the boxes are invariably one-offs in terms of design and look.
