What is a woodland burial ground?

Michael’s Wood Natural burial ground is a truly beautiful alternative to a traditional cemetery or graveyard.

A woodland burial is the ideal choice for those seeking somewhere more natural and beautiful to hold a funeral and remember a loved one. We offer full burial plots, ashes burial plots or the scattering of ashes within the woodland grounds.

How does it work?

We believe that every funeral should be as unique as the individual, which is why we work closely with you to ensure your needs are met. You can choose a full service or have a private intimate gathering at the plot side. Please see our guidance on how to arrange a funeral with us.

Our woodland offers a peaceful setting with plots positioned among the trees and woodland flowers.

Maintenance of the woods

We maintain parts of the woodland, in particular the front section as you come into the woods. During the summer months the grass is cut at our discretion. Pathways are cut for easy access around the woods. We do not maintain individual plots, but you are free to maintain your loved ones plot as long as it is in keeping with our terms & conditions. Towards the back of the woods it is as nature intended to allow wildlife to thrive. Please bear this in mind when selecting a plot.
