Welcome to GreenAcres

The Buildings

GreenAcres prides itself on creating lasting memories and a meaningful experience. A major part of this is the thought that has gone into the buildings it provides.

Using a modular timber construction, the buildings are designed to complement the environment and natural woodland setting and are constructed using renewable timbers from managed woodlands.

The Gathering Hall

Our warm and welcoming Gathering Hall provides a perfect place where families and friends can gather before the Memorial Service takes place or to mark a special occasion such as a wedding or baby naming ceremony. We can also offer you use of the Gathering Hall following the service or ceremony to celebrate the life of a loved one, for as long as you require, which includes:

  • Complimentary tea and coffee before the service
  • Baby changing and toilet facilities
  • Catering facilities
  • Easy access for wheelchair users
  • Audio sound system that links into the Woodland Hall

The Woodland Hall

Our unique and enchanting Woodland Hall is where the ceremony can be held. The beautifully carved wooden lectern coupled with the wall of full-length glass panels that offer panoramic views of the woodland give a calm, intimate feeling, making it the perfect venue for a private celebration of life.

Flexible seating can comfortably seat up to 130 people in our Colney, Epping Forest and Chiltern parks, with Rainford seating up to 90 and Heatherley Wood up to 60.

  • Comfortable and flexible seating
  • Excellent acoustics with high quality audio systems from which your music choices can be played
  • Easy access for wheelchair users
  • Hearing loop

The design of the buildings reflect our commitment to providing a place of natural beauty, the perfect environment to share with friends and families. So whether you are welcoming a new life to a family, the coming together for a wedding or commemorating the passing of a loved one, we want families to mark those special occasions at GreenAcres, in tranquil surroundings where they can take time to reflect with their closest friends and family.
