Natural Burial & Ashes Interment
Oxton and Ketton, both comprise of 36 acres of wildflower meadows and historic woodland, offering beautiful, serene locations for natural burial and ashes interment.
Natural Plot Options
We offer two types of plots for Natural Burials or Ashes Internment:
WOODLAND PLOTS - we have a variety of tree species, which are 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.
WILDFLOWER MEADOW PLOTS - we have an open meadow area where wild flowers are planted and offer a stunning bloom from Spring through Summer. A memorial tree can be planted close to the meadow are but not on the actual grave site.
We handcraft and produce all stonework for plaques, using Welsh Slate. If you purchase a plaque, you will receive an email design mock-up of the plaque for confirmation and approval, before we create the final plaque.Click here to purchase a memorial plaque.
