“We loved the peace and beauty of the woodland. It’s the perfect place for my wife to rest”
Options for ashes at GreenAcres Epping Forest
We offer a place for families and friends to come together to commemorate the passing of a loved one in a beautiful natural setting. Whether you’re looking for a special place to inter or scatter the ashes or hold a memorial service, we’re here to offer support whenever you need us. And no matter what you have in mind, we can help you make it a perfect event to honour the memory of your loved one.
There are a number of ways to create a fitting tribute to the person you love. Contact us to arrange a tour of the Park, and we can discuss the options available in more details.
YOUR OPTIONS FOR MEMORIALS
Often thought to be a spiritual act for setting one free, many people choose to scatter the ashes of a loved one in a location with a personal meaning. If you are looking for somewhere special, a place where you can remember and reflect then an Ash Scattering at GreenAcres Epping Forest offers many beautiful areas for you to choose from. Scattering areas cannot be individually marked but if you wish you can purchase an engraved plaque made from English oak to place on a designated memorial.
There are so many ways in which you might want to remember a loved one, and as with the funeral, this service is completely personal. If you are looking for a special place to inter a loved one’s ashes you can choose from a beautiful established tree, Woodland Glade or Bay. Located in a woodland setting, these options are offered on a lease basis available from 10 years.
We offer a range of sponsored memorials throughout the Park, which you can personalise with an inscription and motif. Memorialise your loved one in the beauty of the outdoors and feel close to them whenever you visit the Park. Available on a 3-year sponsorship basis, our wooden memorial options include a memorial post in our Remembrance Garden, plaque placed on a bench, obelisk or log memorial or a bird box.
In the woodland area of our Park, full burials and ashes graves may be marked with a single wooden post. We offer different styles of posts to suit your requirement. Please speak to a member of our team of specialists for further details.
PRESTIGE OPTIONS FOR ASHES
Offering a greater degree of privacy and exclusivity, our prestige options can be used by families as a place where more than one member of the family can be laid to rest together. These options are offered under our Lifetime Term which is a lease of up to 99 years (subject to lease of the Park).
A Living Memorial Tree creates the perfect legacy for loved ones. A carefully selected sapling tree is planted with the first set of ashes. Two additional sets of ashes may be scattered around the tree in future years to create a family tribute. A single memorial post and vase may be placed at the base of the tree.
A Family Tree is an established tree with space for a number of burial and ash interments, or a combination of both. These trees are a special way to remember loved ones and are often selected for the love of the tree itself. A single memorial post and vase may be placed on each grave around a Family Tree.
Bordered by a low wall created by natural logs, a Woodland Glade offers a unique and dedicated place for families to connect with loved ones. Designed to accommodate a number of ash interments or a combination of ashes and burial, subject to our prior approval. A single memorial post and vase may be placed on each plot. You can also choose to purchase a bench to place in the Glade.
A Woodland Bay is a beautiful space created by nature between the foliage of the Park. The burial or interment plot is marked by the natural environment and carefully placed moss logs, blending loved one’s resting place into the Park’s peaceful surroundings.
