Nestled in a quiet, rural location within the historic Prestwold Estate in north Leicestershire.
Prestwold was one of the very first natural burial grounds in the Midlands, opening in 1999. As such many areas are now beautiful woodland as the trees planted in remembrance over the years have matured. This ensures a wonderful natural habitat for many forms of wildlife.
Prestwold is well positioned for many towns and cities including Loughborough, Nottingham and Melton Mowbray. Although in the countryside the burial ground is well signposted, and directions are also available here.
In recent years a beautiful new section has opened, offering exceptional views. Furthermore, the burial ground offers the newly developed Cherry Grove where a locally grown cherry tree is planted to commemorate each burial of cremated remains that takes place in this area. In forthcoming years this will become a sea of blossom at key times of the year.
We are able to conduct full body burials, and burials or scatterings of cremated remains at Prestwold. Plots can also be chosen and purchased in advance at todays price if you wish. For further information or to arrange to meet a member of our team at Prestwold please telephone (0116) 222 0247 or email

Caring for the environment is key to everything we do. Therefore, we are very proud to have joined The Great Big Green Week which will be taking place countrywide in
