Tithe Green Burial Ground

In the heart of the countryside lies a special place of natural beauty and peace.
A place set aside to provide final resting for those close to you.
A place where wild flowers grow and wildlife dwells.
A place of quiet contemplation in harmony with nature.


Tithe Green Burial Ground, situated within the boundaries of the historic Sherwood Forest, is approximately 9 miles north of Nottingham City immediately off the A614 Old Rufford Road. Close by are the villages of Oxton and Calverton.

The Burial Ground, opened in 1999, comprises 36 acres and forms part of Oxton Estate which has been privately owned by the Sherbrooke family for nearly 500 years. The backdrop of Darcliff Wood offers a unique perspective to the Burial Ground and reinforces the feeling of true nature whilst providing habitat for wildlife.

The vision is to create additional woodland and wild flower meadows that will, in time, blend seamlessly with the existing woods and to provide a special place where we can pay respect to those we love in an environment worthy of their memory, whilst allowing people the opportunity to give something back to nature.
