Burials at GreenAcres Chiltern
At GreenAcres Chiltern, we do things differently. Services in our beautiful park are planned so that there’s no rush and no time pressure. And we’ll work with you to help find the perfect way to remember your loved one.
You can arrange a burial in our glorious woodland - with or without a 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. Our magnificent Service Hall has a unique ambience; a perfect combination of music and lighting, surrounded by a beautiful natural environment.
You can choose a plot in any of our burial areas within the woodland - from Acorn Glade, Moss Grove, High Oaks, Foxglove Walk to Valley View - depending on what suits you best. Burial fees vary, depending on the service and plot location. But our park is 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 woodland glade, Labyrinth or beneath a family tree.
You can also arrange to place a memorial to your loved one in one of our parks.

Traditionally, a full burial service includes a funeral ceremony in our Service Hall 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.
Audio-visual tributes are included in the cost of the service. This means the whole service can be recorded or live-streamed for mourners who are unable to attend.
Funeral Director fees are not included in our prices. For details on pricing options please speak to a member of our team of specialists.
Selecting a prestige option means you can lay your loved one to rest in an exclusive area of park that offers privacy for mourners and visitors without having to worry about the lease. These burial options are leased for the life of the park. Following are some of the prestige options available at Chiltern. Please book a visit to our beautiful park, one of the friendly members from our team of specialists will be available to show you around.
Woodland glades are where families can be remembered together. Our natural glades can accommodate burials and/or ashes. They are secluded, ‘carved out’ pockets around our woodlands that are carefully prepared for you to evoke a feeling of greater privacy and exclusivity
A Family Tree offers burial or scattering plots/areas around an established tree. Single or multiple plots can be sited carefully around the root system of a tree to avoid damaging it. This option creates a distinctive, special, and reflective contents for families to come together to remember
A labyrinth is a sacred pathway, where we can appreciate that what looks like an end point can also be a starting point. It unites families with nature and reminds us about the twists and turns of life. Plots are marked out on the outer edge of the labyrinth and can be memorialised with a wooden post.
My husband’s funeral took place during lockdown. There were only six people present – myself our daughter, her husband and 3 children. We all came from one household. The team were very accommodating in allowing us to sit near each other and in recording the service so that my daughter in New Zealand could also experience the ceremony. I found the experience much easier for me and the children than it would have been with hundreds of people there.
