BURIALS AT HEATHERLEY WOOD
“It just felt right. I had visited three other burial sites before and when I drove into the Heatherley Wood site I knew it would have please my deceased mother!”
Burials at GreenAcres Heatherley Wood Park
At GreenAcres, we do things differently.Ceremonies at our beautiful parks are planned so that there’s no rush and no time pressure. And we’llwork with you to help find the perfect way to remember your loved one.
You can arrange a burial in our glorious woodland, in the meadow or within the manicured Flora’s Garden – 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 meadow view 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 Flora’s Garden, Birch Meadow, Chestnut Meadow, Woodland Dell, to Sweet Chestnut Rise – 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 personaland exclusive such as burial in a private garden, woodland glade, or mausoleum.
You can also arrange to place a permanent memorial to your loved one in one of our parks.
All GreenAcres parks offer:
- Full burial service
- Direct burial without a service
- Graveside service
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 the park that offers both 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 space for families to come together to remember.
These are manicured gardens surrounded by carefully chosen hedging plants and closed with an ornate gate. They afford families space to personalise them to your own taste. Hedges are trimmed to allow privacy without creating a sense of claustrophobia. A private garden can accommodate a number of plots depending on your need..
We were so pleased to have the care and support and service from the team at GreenAcres Heatherley Wood. The staff were kind thoughtful, helpful and professional. I left after my darling mother’s funeral so happy to have celebrated her life at GreenAcres. The room was peaceful, light, natural. The audio excellent for the family
