BURIALS AT COLNEY
“We were all delighted to find GreenAcres. It met with all our needs.”
Burials at GreenAcres Colney
At GreenAcres Colney, we do things differently. Ceremonies at our beautiful park 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 in our splendid woodland – 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. Our magnificent Service Hall has a unique ambience; a perfect combination of music and lighting, surrounded by a beautiful natural environment.
Adjacent to the courtyard we also have a Gathering Hall where family and friends can meet prior to the service and afterwards for the wake.
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. However, 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 park.
All GreenAcres parks offer:
- Full burial service
- Direct burial without a service
- Graveside service
Visit our cremations page to find out about ash interment or scattering at a GreenAcres park.
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.
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.
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.
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!
