“The team at GreenAcres made a sad time a memorable and fitting tribute.”
Burials at GreenAcres
At GreenAcres, we do things differently. Ceremonies at our beautiful parks are planned so that there’s no rush and no time pressure. We’ll work with you to help find the perfect way to remember your loved one.
You can arrange a burial at any of our six parks – with or without a funeral or memorial service.
It doesn’t matter what your faith, beliefs or cultural practices are, you can celebrate the life of the person you love in the way that’s best for you.
Each of our magnificent Service Halls has a unique ambience; a perfect combination of music and lighting, surrounded by a beautiful natural environment
You can choose from a variety of natural environments – from woodland and meadows to lawn and traditional burials – depending on which park you choose. Burial fees vary, depending on the service, plot and location. Included in the cost of a service we offer complimentary music, a visual tribute and live webcast (where available). This means the whole service can be live streamed for mourners unable to attend. Our parks are open to everyone – irrespective of the size of your budget.
Prestige options are available for families wanting a prime park location or something more personal and exclusive such as burial in a private garden, woodland glade, or mausoleum.
You can also arrange to place a memorial to your loved one in one of our parks.
All GreenAcres parks offer:
- Full burial service
- Direct burial without a service
- Graveside service

Full burial service
Traditionally, a full burial service includes a funeral ceremony in one of our Service Halls followed by a graveside burial. Most people find that a one-hour service is sufficient for their needs, but you can book extra time if you wish.
Direct or straight to grave burial
A direct burial, sometimes referred to as ‘straight to grave’, is held when the deceased is buried shortly after death without any funeral service or other formal ceremony. Families sometimes choose this option when they wish to have a service at their place of worship before burial.
Graveside or committal service
A graveside (or committal) service involves holding a short funeral service at the burial site.
Selecting a prestige option means you can lay your loved one to rest in an exclusive area of the park that offers both privacy and for mourners and visitors. Our prestige options range from a beautifully maintained private garden, secluded woodland glade, family tree to a mausoleum. These options vary across our parks.

Comforting and positive in a surprising way considering the sadness of saying goodbye to my father only days before. Our experience was wonderful. As soon as we arrived on a visit to consider GreenAcres for our father’s service we knew we couldn’t consider anywhere better
Recommended by my brother as it is a multi-faith burial site. This was important given my parents beliefs. We could not have wished for a lovelier place for my father to be laid to rest. Everything throughout the service and burial was so professional and caring. We felt you helped us enormously to do justice
My family and mum’s friends had never been to a woodland burial before and were moved by how special it is. My sisters and I are all now wanting this to be our final resting place. Thank you!
