The most beautiful woodlands to lay to rest and one of the amazing places to find ourselves and renew our lives. It’s a magical place.
Each of our parks has a unique and individual character. Our natural setting breathes serenity, and the glorious woodlands and meadowland, with its multitude of flora and fauna, reflects the cycle of life that we are all part of.
Since 1999, many families have chosen to lay their cherished ones to rest in a GreenAcres park, or have celebrated a life by holding a memorial service, wake or anniversary remembrance. Our stunning Ceremonial Buildings and the peaceful woodlands and meadowland provide the perfect backdrop to remember, honour and appreciate life.
Everyone is welcome at GreenAcres, to celebrate their journey or that of a loved one. We are truly a place for all. People of many different faiths and of none have chosen GreenAcres to be buried, or had their ashes interred or scattered. Offering choice is integral to our philosophy – we will accommodate particular wishes or requests wherever possible, and people make use of our facilities in a variety of ways. You may want a small, quiet ash scattering, or alternatively perhaps a funeral service with full woodland burial followed by a gathering, to celebrate your loved one’s memory. Our award-winning ceremonial buildings can also be hired for an event or meeting, or even a family occasion like a wedding or baby naming ceremony.
The services offered at each of our five venues may differ slightly, according to local expectations and requirements but we pride ourselves on always striving to provide the best possible experience for those who have been bereaved, and we do all we can to help make things easier. Our friendly, compassionate and professional team are always on hand to offer help and guidance.
The woodland of the parks is treated with the utmost respect and the woodland teams actively encourage the landscape to naturally flourish and develop. The parks are a haven of wild life and plant growth and the spread of biodiversity is also encouraged.
Compared to the operators of other cemeteries including natural and green burial grounds, GreenAcres stands out in terms of the quality of the on-site facilities and the service provided. The intention is to become the UK’s leading natural burial provider, operating in tune with the environment, public opinion and sound ethical principles.
GreenAcres appeals to people for numerous reasons. A person’s final wish might be to have a green or more environmentally friendly funeral. Some people are passionate about trees and wildlife, and want to return to nature after their death. Others seek an unusual and beautiful venue to celebrate an unusual and beautiful person.
