Making sense of Planning Ahead

It can be difficult to make decisions when you’ve lost someone close to you but by planning ahead and choosing your plot now, you can take the stress and strain away from your family. You’ll help give them peace of mind that this has been taken care of, so they can focus on coming to terms with their loss and taking the time to grieve properly.

Planning ahead can significantly reduce the cost of your funeral. No insurance policy covers everything and, with inflation rising each year, paying for your plot now will save money in the long run. Of course, it also means your family will be free from having to make that decision when the time comes.


If you are caring for a loved one who is dying, you might also want to consider purchasing a plot in advance. If the conversation can be had about their final wishes then that is a good place to start. In that respect planning ahead can be a good idea, as it’s more difficult to make decisions when you are already grieving someone’s death. If it’s too difficult to have the conversation face to face there are online funeral wishes websites.

When you buy a burial plot in advance at GreenAcres Chiltern you will also be future proofing your burial costs as the price you buy at today will not change regardless of how many years in advance you die . To make it even easier you can pay in instalments spread over 12 to 36 months.

Furthermore and uniquely with the purchase of a plot in GreenAcres Chiltern (whether for a full burial or the interment of cremated remains), you can actually choose the very place you want to be buried, unlike many other cemeteries, and by paying in advance as many do already you can take the financial burden from your family when the time comes.


Our Woodland Burial Funeral Plans are provided by Golden Charter, one of the UK’s largest funeral providers*. A Woodland Burial Funeral Plan allows you to pre-pay the cost of your funeral and burial or ash interment in a beautiful woodland setting. Offering a range of affordable payment options to pay for your plan, you can choose to spread the cost or make a one-off payment.

You choose the funeral you want and fix the cost of the services included in your plan at today’s prices. As well as the funeral director’s services, a Woodland Burial Funeral Plan guarantees to cover third party costs, woodland burial services at GreenAcres Chiltern and the plot.

We understand why many people don’t like to talk about their funeral. A funeral plan can make things easier for everyone – so that when the time comes, just one phone call to your funeral director is all that’s needed to activate your plan. Everything will then be taken care of, and carried out according to your wishes.

A Woodland Burial Funeral Plan ensures

  • you plan a day that celebrates your life – so that you are remembered in the way you want to be
  • you choose the send-off you want with a trusted, local funeral director
  • you remove the financial burden – your plan will control the costs so no costly funeral bills for your loved ones
  • your family will receive a genuinely personal service when it really counts
  • your payments are secure and, once fully paid, guaranteed to cover the services included in your plan
