We take great pride in the important role we play in caring for the bereaved and the environment, and are dedicated to doing all we can to help make a positive difference. Key to much that we do are our core commitments. We think it would also be beneficial to share these commitments with you:
Care and Support for the Bereaved
We will do whatever we can to help those in time of need. This includes our personal availability and the services we provide. We will only conduct one burial a day at each of our burial grounds, ensuring that there are no time constraints on services. We help support and advise on Family Led Services and DIY funerals. We can also provide shelters, chairs, a quality blue tooth speaker and refreshments (when Covid regulations allow) to ensure that a final goodbye is everything that it should be.
Personalised services can be arranged and themed funerals, picnics and evening torch-lit services have all been conducted. Grave plots can be chosen and a complete range of memorials is available, including trees and nature homes to ensure a natural legacy for future generations.
Care for the Environment
Caring for the environment is one of the biggest challenges we all face today. As such, our burial grounds are developed and managed to encourage nature and make a positive difference to the environment. Natural burial is so much more environmentally friendly than cremation and traditional burial, and helps ensure beautiful, natural areas for the future.
Trees are essential to the balance of nature and play an enormous role in removing damaging particles from the air, helping flood control, supporting many life forms and providing a calming and positive place to visit. Promoting bio-diversity also ensures habitats for so many forms of life, essential to our planet.
We will care and develop our burial grounds with a light touch to allow nature to thrive, with the associated benefits for us all. And, within time, all of our burial grounds will be left to nature as woodlands and meadows for the benefit of all.
Fighting Funeral Poverty
We understand that funeral poverty is very real for so many people. Therefore, we are committed to ensuring that our prices are low, ensuring burial services and memorials are available for much lower costs than many traditional cemeteries.
We can help and support simple family led services to minimise costs at what is already a difficult and stressful time. And are available to advise how other costs can be reduced.
Our Direct Natural Burial Service also allows a simple, cost effective burial, with all of the advantages of direct cremation. Whilst also supporting the environment and ensuring a beautiful place to visit and remember.
Helping Future Planning
An increasing number of people are looking to plan, and in some cases pay for, their funeral service. This allows peace of mind and removes the financial burden and/or the worry of making the wrong decisions for those left behind. Future planning also ensures that any special requests you have are not forgotten. This could be personalisation of a service with a theme, alternative transport (a VW Camper or Horse Drawn Hearse for example), or music. Alternatively putting “money behind the bar” for family and friends to enjoy a toast and share memories of good times.
Burial plots can be chosen and paid for in advance (at today’s price) and we can help you to prepare documents detailing personal wishes. Many people find that this process is not morbid, rather is a positive and enlightening experience. And the plans for your final goodbye can be amended as you find new music or enjoy new hobbies.
