Saying goodbye to a cherished pet is not something anyone looks forward to but when the time comes it’s good to know that you can say goodbye in the landscape of beautiful English woodland.
GreenAcres Woodland Burials – Epping Forest, is part of a wider group of privately run woodland cemeteries, and is set in over 52 acres of beautiful English woodland. Our woodland burial park has been helping local families celebrate the life of a loved one with respect, empathy and choice for over 5 years.
But after several requests from families, we have now opened up a special area in the woodland cemetery where local people who wish to bury their pet’s ashes can do so in the peaceful and tranquil environment of the woodland.
As well as a certificate to mark the date and the location, people are also invited to make an entry in the Pets Book of Memories held at the park and record a personal message should they wish to do so.
“We have made the process very straightforward” says Carmen Graham, Park Manager. “You simply come and chose the section of the pets-only area, the date you would like and pay for the area to be prepared properly for your pet’s ashes. On the day of the ashes burial, one of our staff will always be on hand if you have any questions. You can say goodbye to your beloved pet at the graveside or even hire the Woodland Hall for a special pets service if you choose to. GreenAcres Woodland Burials – Epping Forest is located within easy reach of Epping, Harlow and the M11.
