Burials and Grave Plots
At Tithe Green there are two types of grave plots, wild flower meadow, or woodland.
- Woodland plots have a tree is planted directly on the grave. A woodland area will encompass several years of planting and then be allowed to grow into a more mature wooded area.
- Wild flower meadow plots are an open meadow area where wild flowers are encouraged. A memorial tree can be planted close to the meadow are but not on the actual grave site.
Should I choose a Woodland or Meadow plot?
If you wish to pre purchase a plot next to a family member, this is only available in the meadow area. We can reserve adjacent plots at the time of the first burial.
If you wish to have a tree planted directly on the grave site, this is a woodland plot.
Plots can be purchased for the interment up to four sets of ashes, again this must be in the meadow area.
Each grave plot is suitable for a single coffin or up to four cremated remains.
You are welcome to pre-purchase either woodland or meadow plots, however specific areas cannot be reserved (aside from where adjacent plots to a burial has been requested). New pre-paid plots will be allocated the next available position.
We only allow eco-friendly coffins and shrouds. Common choices include wool, wicker, willow, water hyacinth, seagrass, banana leaf etc. and soft woods. Coffins of a laminated chipboard/MDF construction are not allowed due to the use of toxic glues in manufacture.
